At least five people have been killed during a third day of sectarian clashes in Burma, which is also known as Myanmar.

The bodies of four men were found near the town of Thandwe in the state of Rakhine. A 94-year-old woman was confirmed killed earlier in the day.

The deaths come as President Thein Sein visits Rakhine.

The BBC's Jonathan Head has been following the story from Singapore.
