Last Summer and October, when riots broke out in Rakhine state in Burma, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims were displaced from their homes. Many fled to neighboring countries, often being killed or drowned in the process, while many more were placed into camps for Internally Displaced People. The conditions of these camps are generally very bad, and disease and starvation are frequent. Many of these camps are literally under blockade by the Burmese government.

The UN has described the Rohingya of Burma as one of the most persecuted groups of people in the entire world.
