Rohingya Muslims Flee To Bangladesh As Violence Shakes Burma

A wave of deadly violence has forced thousands of Rohingya Muslims to flee their homes in Burma, also known as Myanmar, and seek refuge in neighboring Bangladesh.

The UN estimates that some 40,000 people have fled the country since the latest violence erupted a week ago. Rohingya militants reportedly attacked police posts on August 25, prompting a counterattack by security forces.
