60 year old Noor Mohammed from Rakhine State waits with a crowd of Rohingya refugees at the Balukhali camp aid distribution centre. When the Burmese military came to his home village he fled under fire with his family. He was shot in the hand but one of his children was shot and killed. The United Nations reported that by 29 September 2017 more than 500,000 Rohingya refugees had crossed the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh. They are fleeing a campaign by the Myanmar military that began on 25 August 2017, responding, according to the military, to attacks by Rohingya militants against several police posts in which 12 officers were killed. The UN, however, have described the military action as 'a textbook example of ethnic cleansing', stating that the campaign is 'clearly disproportionate'.
