45,000 Rohingya have fled fighting in Myanmar: UN

Fighting in conflict-torn Myanmar’s Rakhine State had forced around 45,000 minority Rohingya to flee, amid allegations of killings and burnings of property.

The United Nations warned this on Friday.

UN rights office spokeswoman Elizabeth Throssell told reporters in Geneva “Tens of thousands of civilians have been displaced in recent days by the fighting in Buthidaung and Maungdaw townships”.

 An estimated 45,000 Rohingya have reportedly fled to an area on the Naf River near the border with Bangladesh seeking protection, he added.
