300,000 Rohingya Muslims flee from Myanmar due to violence

Around three hundred thousand Rohingya Muslims are reported to have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh following two weeks of ethnic violence in their country. Humanitarian organisations officers said that refugee camps in the country are almost full after the Rohingyas alleged that security forces and Buddhists in Rakhine state attacked them and burnt their homes.

Bangladeshi Prime Minister, Sheik Hasina, visited a refugee camp saying that Myanmar should establish special areas where those escaping from violence may verify their citizenship and are allowed to return to their homes.

Around one million Rohingya Muslims live in Myanmar. Amnesty International has accused the Myanmar authorities of placing land mines within the border, that have badly injured many Rohinyas, including children.
