The Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said in a statement that at least 6.700 Rohingya Muslims were killed in the month after fighting erupted in Myanmar.

The MSF, an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization, reached this result based on surveys of refugees in Bangladesh, making the number higher to a large extent than Myanmar’s official figure of 400.

MSF said it was “the clearest indication yet of the widespread violence” by Myanmar authorities.

The Myanmar authorities and military still denies accusations of ethnic cleansing and blames the hostility on “terrorists.”
More than 647,000 Rohingya have fled into Bangladesh since August, MSF says.
