The United Nations has started work inside Myanmar’s violence-torn northern Rakhine state as its agencies have been granted permission to operate there.

Specialists from the UNHCR and UNDP were finally given permission to enter northern Rakhine to assess local conditions.

The UN has been waiting for access to the epicenter of the military’s clearance operations against the Rohingya minority since June.
