Geneva: A UN aid agency has appealed for $32.5 million to help rehabilitate victims of the recent ethnic conflict in Myanmar.

The communal clashes in Rakhine state have displaced some 64,000 people, Xinhua quoted the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) as saying.

UN under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs Valerie Amos has released $5 million to enable immediate shelter, food and sanitation support for those in need, it said.
John Ging, OCHA`s director of operations, expressed concern for the displaced people after ending a four-day visit to Myanmar Thursday.
