Rohingya and Buddhists remain divided

Mutual distrust lingers between two communities months after violence in western Myanmar.

    About 60,000 Muslim Rohingya communities are still staying in relief camps after they fled their homes due to violence in June.

    The government was forced to declare a state of emergency after fighting between Buddhists and Muslims in Rakhine state left at least 80 people dead.

    Even as the two parties seek reconciliation, mutual distrust lingers, thus making the Rohingya's efforts to return to their homes unlikely.

    Al Jazeera’s Wayne Hay reports from Sittwe in western Myanmar.
