More than 500,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Burma over the past month. As streams of those fleeing arrive in Bangladesh, refugee camps fill to bursting and aid workers are struggling to cope.

“Aung San Suu Kyi says the military operations in Rakhine state ended on September 5, but the army chief is disobeying her,” says Kala Meah, a fisherman who has just crossed into Bangladesh with his family. “He hasn’t ended anything. He doesn’t want a single living Rohingya in Burma.”
