Rohingya kids desperate for help
AN UNPRECEDENTED 200,000 child refugees have fled Myanmar and are in urgent need of help, UNICEF has warned, as the Rohingya crisis reaches new proportions. Minors made up at least 60% of the 330,000 Rohingya who had crossed the border into Bangladesh over the past few weeks following attacks by Myanmar’s army and civilian groups, Unicef spokesman Jean-Jacques Simon said. Highly traumatised, they were arriving malnourished and injured after walking for days. “It’s reaching a new proportion every day ... you have to wonder when it will stop,” Mr Simon said.
