Monks march in Thailand, urging the United Nations to intervene in a sectarian conflict in Bangladesh.

Gathering outside a U.N. building in Bangkok, they called for protection for their fellow Buddhists and urged the U.N. to take action.

The demo came after violence between Muslims and Buddhists, which saw temples and at least 50 homes set on fire.

Police said the attacks happened after Muslims saw a photo on Facebook of a burned Koran, allegedly posted by a young Buddhist.

The online account has since been removed.
