    Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, UN rights chief, has threatened to push for international intervention as Myanmar's military reportedly continues carrying out atrocities against Rohingya civilians.

    The violence has forced more than 600,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh and created a major humanitarian crisis.

    International aid organisations in Bangladesh are sounding the alarm and asking the international community for more funding.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Jamjoom reports.
