Rohingya Muslims who were present during the massacres in Myanmar have shared horrific accounts of crimes against their minority group.
The northwestern state of Rakhine was attacked and Burmese soldiers began to burn homes down, and barred the mosque to prevent access. Individuals were attacked with machetes and were forced to hide and run for their lives.
It is suspected that more than 1,000 individuals were killed in the massacre, based on a U.N. estimate.
Families that were split apart during the escape from Myanmar were reunited in Bangladesh, but others did not fare as well and lost their loved ones. Due to the poor economic state of Bangladesh, refugees who have fled there may face hard days ahead, as they are unable to find food and basic necessities.
