Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) estimates more than six and a half thousand Rohingya were killed in the first month of a military crackdown in Myanmar. The charity surveyed thousands of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, finding that the number of deaths during the month of August was much higher than Myanmar's official figure of 400. MSF estimates that at least 730 of those killed were children under the age of five.
