Reporting the Rohingya refugee crisis

Oct 16, 2017, 09:05 PM

Myanmar's military crackdown on the country's Rohingya has resulted in the killing of more than 400 men, women and children and has driven hundreds of thousands out of the country.

More than 500,000 Rohingya refugees are now in Bangladeshi refugee camps. Of them, more than half are in unregistered camps, where food, shelter, drinking water and sanitation are a luxury.

Their stories are dark enough to break down even the most seasoned journalists.
