A medical aid group estimates at least 9,000 Rohingya civilians died in Myanmar in just one month earlier this year, almost 7,000 of whom were killed in violent attacks by troops.

Doctors Without Borders (known by its French acronym, MSF) says about 700 children were among those killed during the military crackdown that started in August.

The UN has called the army’s actions against the Rohingya a campaign of ethnic cleansing.

Al Jazeera's Mohammed Jamjoom reports.
