Rakhine State, Myannmar

Rakhine State has become the site of what has been described as the world's worst ongoing genocide. The Rohingya, an ethno-linguistic group who have historically lived in what is now Rakhine State, have been displaced from their homes and communities through genocidal tactics employed by the Myanmar army. The number of displaced individuals already stands at over 900,000 for this year alone.
