More than one hundred thousand Rohingyas have fled Myanmar after a military crackdown. DW's Debarati Guha asks how long they will have to struggle for their identity?
Having fled deadly violence, over a million Rohingya refugees live in sprawling camps in Bangladesh. DW gained exclusive access to the remote, cyclone-prone island where the government intends to relocate them.
In an interview with DW, Bangladesh's Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen expressed disappointment over "inadequate" international pressure on Myanmar to take back the Rohingya refugees currently camped in Cox's Bazar.
Local and international NGOs have been working hard to provide relief to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. But their efforts are proving to be counterproductive in repatriation attempts, says DW's Khaled Muhiuddin.
Some 3,450 Rohingya refugees were due to be sent back to Myanmar from Bangladesh, but none appeared at the repatriation center. The UN has confirmed that abuse tantamount to genocide had occurred in Myanmar.
