    Mobile phone footage taken by Rohingya fleeing a killing spree in Myanmar could be used as evidence in future investigations, according to aid agencies.

    It has been two years since Myanmar's security forces launched a crackdown on nearly 700,000 Rohingya in Rakhine state.

    Yet not a single person has been brought to justice.

    Many of them came to the town of Cox's Bazar just over the border in Bangladesh, from where Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker reports.
