More than 100,000 people have been displaced, the vast majority without receiving sufficient assistance because they are ethnic Rohingya. Aid is being severely restricted by the government and many Rohingya people have been excluded.
The President of Burma proposed a policy that amounts to ethnic cleansing, asking the United Nations to arrange for Rohingya people to be placed in camps, removed from Burma and sent to third countries.
Action needs to be taken now to ensure aid can be delivered, arrests and human rights abuses stop, and people are allowed to return safely to their homes.
