Two years after Myanmar's military brutal campaign against the Rohingya, which led to the exodus of more than 750,000 people and sustained accusations of genocide, an important number estimated between 500 and 700,000 stayed behind in Rakhine. Mainly concentrated around Sittwe and other townships in central and southern Rakhine. Their situation is becoming worse since humanitarian aid is severely restricted, a new ethnic conflict has erupted in Rakhine and the attention of aid agencies have been mainly focusing on the Rohingya that fled to Bangladesh in 2017. Their movements are further severely restricted allowing them to circulate within the camps and surrounding Rohingya villages. A train that passes through the villages and camps twice a day remains the only affordable transport between the IDP camps on the outskirts of Sittwe, the capital of Rakhine. Rohingya villagers travelling by train to the IDP camps where 130,000 Rohingya have forcibly be settled since 2012. Sittwe township, Rakhine, Myanmar, September 2019
