A Rakhine child is pictured as he sits on his mother's laps at a monastery used as a temporary shelter for people displaced by ongoing violence in Sittwe, capital of Burma's western state of Rakhine on June 13, 2012. Security forces grappled with sectarian violence that has left dozens dead and hundreds of homes burned down. A state of emergency has been declared in Rakhine state, which has been rocked by a wave of rioting and arson, posing a major test for the reformist government which took power last year.
