    Myanmar's control of aid supplies could affect Rohingya.

    Aid agencies fear a humanitarian crisis is unfolding in both Myanmar and Bangladesh, after 290,000 Rohingya crossed the border.

    The mainly Buddhist majority of Rakhine State, the Arakans, are also struggling to find enough to eat. The Red Cross increased its operations to fill the void left behind by the United Nations, who pulled their staff out after the violence flared. However, Myanmar's government will coordinate and facilitate the distribution of aid, so some of the Rohingya fear they will be neglected.
