U.N.: More Than 120,000 Rohingya Flee Myanmar Violence

The United Nations said more than 120,000 Rohingya people have now fled Myanmar over the past few weeks following a rise in violence against the Muslim ethnic minority. There are more than 400,000 more stateless Rohingya people reportedly trapped in conflict zones in the region, and aid agencies operating with the U.N. have been blocked from delivering essential supplies—including food and water. About 123,600 have already crossed the Naf River into Bangladesh. Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has called out fellow laureate Aung San Suu Kyi for failing to condemn the “tragic and shameful treatment” of the population.
