In this photo taken on Nov. 8, 2012, Ethnic Rakhine people take refuge at a monastery in Mrauk-U, Rakhine state, western Myanmar. Mrauk-U itself has been spared the bloodshed between the Buddhist Rakhine and the Muslim Rohingya that has scarred other parts of Rakhine state. It is calm, and for foreign tourists, safe. But just 10 kilometers (six miles) to the south, there is a village where civilians were reportedly beheaded in a massacre last month that saw women and children slaughtered, then buried in mass graves. Across western Myanmar's Rakhine state, the United Nations is distributing emergency supplies of food and shelter to terrified villagers who have fled burning homes. A nighttime curfew is in force.
