Protesters demanded justice and called for international protection in their homeland.
Last year, Rohingya militants carried out a series of attacks against Myanmar security forces, leaving 12 police officers dead. It triggered a crackdown by the Myanmar military, with widespread reports of indiscriminate killings, arson, looting and rape.
According the UN, more than 700,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar as a result of the conflict.
