Khatun holds her daughter as they hide with other relatives in Teknaf

Shobika Khatun, 32, holds her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter Dildar Begum as they hide with other relatives in Teknaf October 29, 2012. Khatun, who belongs to a group of Rohingya Muslims currently hiding with local villagers to avoid being arrested by the Border Guards of Bangladesh, said she arrived by boat to neighbouring Bangladesh after fleeing the mass burning of houses and violence in Myanmar. The United Nations said 22,587 people had now been displaced after unrest between Muslim Rohingyas and Buddhist Rakhines claimed at least 84 lives in Rakhine State and tested the reformist mettle of the quasi-civilian government that replaced Myanmar's oppressive ruling junta last year.
