Latest news on the Rohingyas of Myanmar

Here below is the latest tally from the BROUK:
On 9th October border guard police posts on the Burma Bangladesh border were attacked by armed men, and police officers were killed. In response the Burmese military launched a major crackdown, alleging Rohingya were responsible. Human rights violations include executions, arrests, beatings, torture, forced relocations, blocking of humanitarian aid, burning of homes and businesses, and the mass rape of ethnic Rohingya women.
From 12th November the military dramatically escalated their attacks against Rohingya villages, using heavy weapons and helicopter gunships, killing and injuring hundreds of people and displacing 20,000 Rohingya in just one weekend. 
Between 9th October to 20th November, BROUK has recorded the following estimates of abuses committed:
Deaths: 428 Rohingya
Rape: 192 Rohingya women
Arrest: 440
Missing people: 120
Reports of beatings and physical violence: 160
