Violence leaves 140,000 displaced in Rakhine

A year after sectarian violence erupted in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, some 140,000 people remain in camps with little hope of returning home, United Nations sources said on Tuesday. “The government recognizes only 125,000 IDPs (internally displaced persons), whereas in fact, according to our estimates, the actual figure is 139,453,” said OCHA spokesman Jamie Munn.DPA
