Aid groups urgently need $77m (£58m) to help Rohingya Muslims who have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh since violence erupted two weeks ago, the UN says.
About 290,000 Rohingya are said to have fled Rakhine state and sought shelter in Bangladesh since 25 August.
There is a desperate need for food, water and health services for new arrivals in Cox's Bazaar, the UN added.
