Rohingya migrants have their breakfast at a temporary shelter in Bayeun, Aceh province, Indonesia. Thousands of migrants - about half of them Bangladeshi and the others minority Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar - have landed ashore in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Thousands more are believed to be trapped at sea, and the United Nations has warned that time is running out.

Activists and supporters take out a protest rally against Bangladeshi nationals illegally staying in the northeastern Indian states during a twelve-hour general strike called by them in Guwahati, Assam. Assam has been simmering with tension since riots broke out between ethnic Bodos and Muslim settlers in late July. The violence killed nearly 90 people and 400,000 have found shelter in government relief camps. The Bodos and Muslim settlers, who mostly came from the former East Pakistan before it became Bangladesh in 1971, have clashed repeatedly over the years but the recent violence is the worst since the mid-1990s.
