A Rohingya man carrying his child looks at police and volunteer conducting a national census at a Rohingya village in Sittwe, the capital of Rakhine State April 1, 2014. The government embarked on its first national census in more than 30 years. The Rohingya are regarded as immigrants from neighbouring Bangladesh by many in Myanmar and are not recognised as one of the country's official ethnic groups, but some have said they will write in their ethnicity in a box on the census form. That has stirred opposition to the whole census operation by some ethnic Rakhine people. REUTERS/Soe Zeya Tun
