Save the Children has released a report revealing shocking atrocities against Rohingya Muslim children in Myanmar, Sydney Morning Herald reported. Save the Children Australia director of policy and international programs Matt Tinkler, who has returned from visiting Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh, said “almost every child we’ve spoken to has seen and experienced things that no child ever should.”

“He was not even one year old…I will never forget their screams,” a 24 year-old woman told investigators from Save the Children, which has just released a report revealing shocking atrocities against Rohingya Muslim children in Myanmar.

A 12 year-old boy fled his village for Bangladesh after the military started hacking people with machetes before entering an abandoned village, hoping to find some food or water, and eventually came across a reservoir, the report said.
