Shattered skulls and blood: Rohingya report Myanmar massacre

In this photo, Mohamed Yaha, 18, demonstrates to The Associated Press in his tent in Jamtoli refugee camp in Bangladesh, what he saw when soldiers bound the hands of dozens of men behind their backs with nylon rope and blindfolded them with scarves taken from the women when they massacred his village Maung Nu, in Myanmar's Rakhine State. More than 650,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar since August, and many have brought with them stories of atrocities committed by security forces in Myanmar, including an Aug. 27 army massacre that reportedly took place in the village of Maung Nu.
