Myanmar's Rohingya languish in refugee camps

Exclusive report from Rakhine state where thousands have been displaced by ethno-sectarian violence.

    Tens of thousands of displaced people continue to live in refugee camps in Myanmar's Rakhine state after clashes between Rohingya Muslims and Rakhine Buddhists killed dozens of combatants in June.

    Both sides accuse the other group of having committed atrocities during the conflict.

    Al Jazeera has gained exclusive access to camps around Sittwe, the capital of Rakhine state, where the United Nations estimates that 70,000 people have been left homeless.  

    Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from Sittwe.
