Tasmina Begum, 16, and Mohammad Eliyas, 18, pose for a photo in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. They married in a Bangladesh refugee camp 4 days ago. They fled after the August 25th attack when the military came to their village, burning houses and raping women. Eliyas says 'My parents are very old and have no one to take care of them and have no one to cook for them, so they decided I should get married. I'm a man, how can I cook? It was my parents decision that I should marry her, it's no problem that she's young. I have to do what my parents say.' Tasmina says, 'My father wanted me to get married so I couldn't say no.'
