New footage shows hundreds of Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar through jungle

It has been described by the UN as ethnic cleansing: more than half a million Rohingya Muslims have been forced to flee Burma for Bangladesh fearing for their lives at the hands of Myanmar’s Buddhist majority.

Now Channel 4 News has obtained new footage from the jungle on the border between the two countries. It shows hundreds possibly thousands more still making the desperate journey to safety.
