Displaced persons in western Myanmar require refugee assistance

Four months after inter-communal violence swept through the region, villagers in western Myanmar's Rakhine state continue to leave their homes in search of food, health care and other assistance. There are currently some 75,000 internally displaced people in camps in Rakhine state, mostly in and around the townships of Sittwe, Kyauk Taw and Maungdaw. Travellers to this area should exercise caution since essential services may be disrupted.
