UN says 22,000 displaced in Myanmar unrest

Published: 10.28.12, 11:07 / Israel News

Victims of Myanmar's latest explosion of Muslim-Buddhist violence fled to already packed displacement camps along the country's western coast as a top UN official said Sunday the unrest has forced more than 22,000 people from their homes.


Wooden boats carrying some of those on the move arrived outside the state capital, Sittwe. They trudged to the nearby Thechaung camp, a place already home to thousands of Rohingya Muslims who took refuge there after a previous wave of violence in June. (AP)
