Myanmar Death Toll Surges As 38,000 Rohingya Flee to Bangladesh

Around 400 people — most of them Rohingya — have died in violence searing through Myanmar’s Rakhine state, the army chief’s office said Friday, with tens of thousands forced to flee across the border into Bangladesh.

A further 20,000 Rohingya have massed along the Bangladeshi frontier, barred from entering the South Asian country, while scores of desperate people have drowned attempting to cross the Naf, a border river, in makeshift boats.
