Myanmar braces for storm

5 years ago139 views



Hundreds of Myanmar residents flee their homes as the country braces for a tropical cyclone.

Local media reported almost 400 people have been evacuated from part of the west coast.

The cyclone is expected to hit Bangladesh Thursday before moving into Myanmar.

The United Nations said about 69,000 people, most of them Rohingya Muslims, live in "precarious" conditions during the rainy season, which begins this month.

The evacuations are seen as a test of the government's willingness to assist the stateless and long-persecuted Rohingya Muslims.
