Burmese leader visits Rakhine state

Burmese President Thein Sein is visiting Rakhine state amid a fresh outbreak of sectarian violence between Buddhists and Muslims.

Police say a Muslim woman was killed on Tuesday, and many homes set alight.

The latest clashes appear to have been caused by a row over a parking space.

Here, President Thein Sein arrives in Rakhine to visit the homes of the officially stateless Rohingya Muslims.
