Around 400,000 Rohingya living in 'dire' conditions within Myanmar: deputy relief chief

17 April 2018

Apart from nearly 700,000 Rohingya refugees who have fled across the Myanmar border, a further 400,000 are living in “dire situations” at home, without access to healthcare or education.

That’s according to Ursula Mueller, the UN’s deputy relief chief, and Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), who spent nearly a week inside Myanmar earlier this month.

She told Matt Wells what she’d seen.
