Victims of Myanmar's latest explosion of Muslim-Buddhist violence fled to already packed displacement camps along the country's western coast Sunday, with a top U.N. official saying the unrest has forced more than 22,000 people from their homes.
Mr. Nigam said 22,587 were displaced, and they included both Muslims and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists, but he gave no breakdown.
Speaking to The Associated Press on Sunday while visiting Thechaung camp, Mr. Nigam said getting aid to the new wave of displaced people will be a challenge as some fled on boats and others have sought refuge on isolated hilltops.
