Aftermath in Mandalay.
A Muslim cemetery in Myanmar and a school inside its compound were set on fire Friday evening after hundreds of Buddhists rode motorcycles around the city shouting death threats.
Some shouted "We're going to kill all the Muslims," as they rode through the streets after attending the funeral of a Buddhist man stabbed to death Wednesday night.
A Muslim man was also killed, beaten to death early on Thursday on his way to morning prayers.
Inter-religious violence has flared throughout the country over the past two years. It is threatening to undermine political reforms.
A buddhist monk has little hope.
(SOUNDBITE) (Burmese) UNIDENTIFIED BUDDHIST MONK OF GALONE NI MONASTERY, SAYING:
"The situation might get worse as the situation is still very tense from both the Buddhist and Muslim sides."
While people of different faiths were able to sit down for talks, a Muslim leader sees few prospects for peace.
