Yasmin holds up her UNHCR identity card as she hides with other relatives at a village in Teknaf 
Twenty-two-year-old Yasmin holds up her UNHCR identity card as she hides with other relatives at a village in Teknaf October 29, 2012. Yasmin, who was a teacher in the UNHCR Community Education Program in Da Byu Chaung district in Myanmar's Rakhine state, belongs to a group of Rohingya Muslims who are currently hiding with local villagers to avoid being arrested by the Border Guards of Bangladesh. She said she walked into neighbouring Bangladesh after escaping from the mass burning of houses and violence in Myanmar. The United Nations said 22,587 people had now been displaced after unrest between Muslim Rohingyas and Buddhist Rakhines claimed at least 84 lives in Rakhine State and tested the reformist mettle of the quasi-civilian government that replaced Myanmar's oppressive ruling junta last year.
