Stateless in their own country

A short documentary about the violence in Arakan state, Burma and the situation of Rohingya by journalist Kalle Bergbom.

Since communal violence erupted in June 2012 in Burma's Arakan (Rakhine) State, there is a growing humanitarian and human rights crisis.

The violence evolved into systematic attacks against the ethnic Rohingya and more than 100,000 people have been displaced. Many of those forced to flee the violence are living in squalid camps in desperate need of food and shelter.
