The world must take notice now’: Father hopes shocking photo of his dead 16-month-old son lying face down in the mud will highlight plight of Rohingya people fleeing Myanmar

The father of a toddler who was found dead lying face down in the mud after trying to flee Myanmar has pleaded with the world to take notice of their plight.

Rohingya refugee Mohammed Shohayet, a 16-month-old boy, had been trying to leave his home in Rakhine State with his family and head to Bangladesh.

The Rohingya people have claimed they have been persecuted by the Myanmar military and many fleeing the country have told of rape, murder and arson at the hands of security forces.
