New wave of Rohingya refugees flock to Bangladesh camps

A new wave of up to 15 thousand Rohingya refugees have crossed the border from their homes in Myanmar to seek refuge in the makeshift camps inside Bangladesh. Some of the new exodus have described scenes of violence that the UN has called ‘textbook ethnic cleansing’. Myanmar’s military government has maintained they are targeting militants, not civilians.

A warning – there are some distressing scenes in this report.
