520 8  The Rohingya are a Muslim group who live in Rakhine state 
       (formerly Arakan state) in western Myanmar (Burma), a 
       majority Buddhist country. According to the United Nations,
       they are one of the most persecuted minorities in the 
       world. They suffer routine discrimination at the hands of 
       neighboring Buddhist Rakhine groups, but international 
       human rights groups such as Human Rights Watch (HRW) have 
       also accused Myanmar's authorities of being complicit in a
       campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya Muslims.
       The Rohingya face regular violence, arbitrary arrest and 
       detention, extortion, and other abuses, a situation that 
       has been particularly acute since 2012 in the wake of a 
       serious wave of sectarian violence. Islam is practiced by 
       around 4% of the population of Myanmar, and most Muslims 
       also identify as Rohingya. Yet the authorities refuse to 
       recognize this group as one of the 135 ethnic groups or 
       'national races' making up Myanmar's population. On this 
       basis, Rohingya individuals are denied citizenship rights 
       in the country of their birth, and face severe limitations
       on many aspects of an ordinary life, such as marriage or 
       movement around the country. This expose of the attempt to
       erase the Rohingyas from the face of Myanmar is sure to 
       gain widespread attention
