Burma's Rohingya Muslims seeking refuge

Help

Thousands of people are still displaced in Burma following clashes between Buddhists and local Muslims last month.

They have been trying to cross the border with Bangladesh, but Dhaka has turned them away, saying they cannot afford to help them.

Amnesty International has accused Burmese security forces as well as ethnic Rakhine Buddhist residents of assaults, unlawful killings of Muslims and the destruction of property.

The BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan went to a fishing hamlet near the Burmese border to speak to some of the refugees.
