The UN has said the Rohingya in Myanmar are facing a catastrophe. Over 379,000 Rohingya have escaped over the border to Bangladesh. The UN said the Rohingya are being attacked by Myanmar's security forces. The BBC said many villages have been burned down. Myanmar's army said it isn't attacking the Rohingya. The Rohingya are mostly Muslim. They have lived in Myanmar for hundreds of years, but Myanmar says they are illegal immigrants.

Many people asked Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi to help the Rohingya. They want her Nobel Peace Prize to be taken away and that she cannot keep it while the Rohingya are suffering. Ms Suu Kyi has not criticized the attacks on the Rohingya. Bangladesh asked Myanmar to take the Rohingya refugees back. The Myanmar army said no. It said Buddhists are the original people of Rakhine state, where most Rohingyas live.
