Religious violence in Myanmar is moving closer to its largest city, Yangon.

Fighting between Muslims and Buddhists erupted last year in neighbouring Rakhine state.

Since then, hundreds of people have been killed and more than 100,000 displaced.

Those living inside Yangon are growing increasingly nervous.

Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Yangon.
