This is the text (if you need help).

The Rohingya in Myanmar are facing a catastrophe. Over 379,000 have escaped to Bangladesh. The UN said Myanmar's security forces were attacking the Rohingya. The BBC said many villages were on fire. Myanmar's army said it isn't attacking the Rohingya. The Rohingya are mostly Muslim.

People want Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi to help the Rohingya. They want her Nobel Peace Prize to be taken away if she doesn't. Bangladesh wants Myanmar to take the Rohingya refugees back. The Myanmar army said no. It said the Rohingya do not belong in Myanmar, which is a Buddhist country.

Back to the Rohingya lesson.
