  • State media reports that 4 220 ethnic Rakhine from 15 villages in Northern Rakhine, have been escorted back to their homes. Approximately 30,000 non-Rohingyas were displaced following the violence that erupted on 25 August.
  • Concerns continue to grow for approximately 100 000 Rohingyas who have fled and/ or are attempting to cross the border into Bangladesh from southern Maungdaw.
  • In Ratheduang, according to the State Secretary, all three camps are now empty (approximate population 3 500). Unverified reports indicate that almost the entire Muslim population from Ratheduang (approx. 55 000) have now fled into other areas, amidst ongoing reports of extensive destruction and burning of villages.
