Burmese state media say twenty-one people have been killed in the western state of Rakhine. Rights groups say they fear the number of dead may be much higher.

Burmese President Dan San has deployed army troops and declared emergency rule in Rakhine. Hundreds of Rohingyas have attempted to flee to Bangladesh by boat to escape the violence. But, the government in Bangladesh has refused to let them enter. Officials say it is not in the best interests of Bangladesh to let the Rohingyas stay.
