More and more refugees cross the boarder to Bangladesh in attempt to escape the mass killings they say are being perpetrated against their people.
The UN estimates that, in just one week, almost 50,000 Rohingy, a stateless, ethnic Muslim minority who largely inhabit Myanmar's western Rakhine state, have fled due to escalating violence.
Around 27,000 refugees have crossed into Bangladesh since last Friday, and a further 20,000 remain stuck in no-man's land between the two East Asian nations.
On Thursday, the bodies of 20 Rohingya were pulled out of the Naf River, along the border of Myanmar and Bangladesh. Twelve of the dead were children.
"They are beating us, shooting at us and hacking our people to death," Hamida Begum, one refugee who has left everything behind in a desperate attempt to flee with at least their lives, told CNN.
Government officials said Thursday that at least 399 people had been killed in fighting since last Friday. Of those, 370 they claim to have been "terrorists". However, activists say the military has killed women, children and innocent men.
