Bangladesh: Rohingya Refugees
Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar in the past decade. Most live in makeshift camps and refugee centers with harrowing stories of the Burmese army committing human-rights abuses, such as gang rape, arson and extrajudicial killing. The Rohingya are a mostly stateless Muslim group numbering about 1.1 million, are the majority in Rakhine state and smaller communities in Bangladesh, Thailand and Malaysia. They are routinely described by human rights organizations as the 'most oppressed people in the world' and a 'minority that continues to face statelessness and persecution.'
