Rohingya Crisis: Refugees in Bangladesh vulnerable to incoming monsoon
Local Editor

Rohingya refugees are facing fresh turmoil as the monsoon season fast approaches in Bangladesh.

Rohingya

Some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have lived in refugee camps there since last August, after fleeing neighboring Myanmar.

Refugees escaped from soldiers and gunfire, mobs that stormed through their villages, killing, raping, and burning.

Living in clusters of bamboo and plastic huts, built amid endless waves of steep hills, the refugees are ill-equipped for a deluge that, in an average year, dumps anywhere from 40 to 60 centimeters of rain per month.

Myanmar's border areas have been unstable since its independence from British colonial rule in 1948, hosting a dizzying array of insurgencies, local militias, and drug-running operations.

Rights groups say the army has stepped up its campaign in remote areas of Myanmar amid the Rohingya crisis, which has seen some 700,000 people flee to Bangladesh.

The US and the UN have called the military crackdown ethnic cleansing.
