Rohingya Muslims continue to flee violence in their Myanmar homeland and enter Bangladesh by boat, some bringing with them children and livestock.

In video filmed on the Naf River at Shah Porir Dip, Bangladesh, on September 25, Rohingya men and women, some with children, can be seen packed into a boat.

Once on land, they can be seen approaching the shore, bringing their livestock of goat and buffalo with them.

According to reports, dozens of people have drowned in the Naf River since the mass exodus of Rohingya began several weeks ago as a result of what the United Nations has described as ethnic cleansing.
