Multimedia: Rohingya Refugees Refused Access on World Refugee Day
June 20th, 2012
On Sunday June 10, 2012, Myanmar declared a state of emergency in the western state of Rakhine after clashes between Buddhists and Rohingya left 50 people dead. The Rohingya are a Muslim people who live in the Arakan region of Myanmar.
Ten days later, more than 90,000 Rohingya refugees have fled Myanmar to the Bangladeshi border, only to be denied access. The irony? June 20 is World Refugee Day.
