Aid activity freeze hurts Myanmar's Rohingya

Suspension of NGO operations after attacks on their offices leaves aid-dependent minority group even more vulnerable.

    Weeks after the suspension of foreign aid operations, the humanitarian situation for Myanmar's most vulnerable people, including the ethnic Rohingya people, is worsening.

    International aid groups stopped operations after their premises were attacked last month. The decision affected Rohingya Muslims in particular because so many of them live in refugee camps.

    The minority group faces government restrictions and is heavily reliant on non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
