    Myanmar's army is being accused of deliberately targeting Rohingya children who are escaping a military crackdown in Rakhine State.

    A nine-year-old girl has told Al Jazeera how she survived being shot three times as she crossed into Bangladesh, after Myanmar soldiers shot and killed both her parents.

    More than 625,000 Rohingya are seeking sanctuary in Bangladesh.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford reports from the Thangkali Refugee Camp, Bangladesh.
