Myanmar: Humanitarian situation worsening for Rohingya

Weeks after the suspension of foreign aid operations, the humanitarian situation for Myanmar's most vulnerable people, including the ethnic Rohingya, is worsening. International aid groups stopped operations after their premises were attacked last month. The decision affected the Rohingya in particular because so many live in refugee camps. The mainly Muslim minority group face government restrictions and are heavily reliant on NGOs. Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from Sittwe, Myanmar.
