A government spokesman has said the situation in Burma’s western Rakhine state is calm after almost a week of ethnic violence.
Human rights groups, meanwhile, are calling for action to end the violence that one group says has been documented with satellite imagery.
Rakhine state spokesman Win Myaing said there were no reports this morning of fresh clashes between the Buddhist Rakhine and the Muslim Rohingya communities.
State television reported last night that 67 people had died, 95 were injured and 2,818 houses had been destroyed from Sunday through Thursday.
New York-based Human Rights Watch called for more government action to protect lives.
It released satellite photos that it says show extensive destruction in a predominantly Rohingya area where violence was reported.
Human Rights Watch’s deputy Asia director, Phil Robertson said the government of Burma, which is also known as Myanmar, urgently needs to provide security for the Rohingya.
He said: "Unless the authorities also start addressing the root causes of the violence, it is only likely to get worse."
Human Rights Watch said the true death toll may be higher than that officially reported, based on witnesses' accounts and a history of government undercounting in cases that might reflect badly on it.
Amnesty International's Asia-Pacific deputy director, Isabelle Arradon, said the government needs to intervene and “break the cycle of discrimination and violence".
