Sectarian violence between Rohingyas and Buddhists

Smoke rises from debris of a burnt mosque which was torched during Tuesday's clashes between Buddhists and Muslims in Thabyuchaing village, Thandwe township, Rakhine State, in western Myanmar, Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013. Rakhine was home to much of the sectarian violence that has killed hundreds of people since June 2012. The violence has thrown new attention on the government's failure to stop the unrest, which has displaced more than 140,000 people, the majority of them Muslims in this heavily Buddhist country.
