Since 25 August over 600,000 Rohingyas have fled targeted violence in Myanmar and sought safety across the border in Bangladesh. This brings the total of Rohingyas in Bangladesh to nearly a million refugees. The new arrivals have shared horrific stories with Médecins Sans Frontières about their villages being raided and burned and of widespread violence against civilians. In the first three weeks alone, MSF treated over 250 newly arrived patients with violence-related injuries. Their injuries included bullet wounds, severe burns, blast wounds, stab wounds and sexual violence.
