Video: Rohingya Muslim refugees flee ethnic cleansing in Myanmar

Hundreds of thousands of Muslim Rohingyas have fled a brutal government crackdown in Myanmar. Many have lost their lives trying to escape.

They are desperate to flee an offensive by Myanmar's all-powerful army, which wants to force the minority-Muslim group from the mainly Buddhist country. The United Nations calls the crackdown "textbook ethnic cleansing."
