Bangladesh: Burma's Rohingya refugees

Since 1992 the Rhingya's, a Burmese muslim minority, are escaping the terror (forced labour, rape, human mine-sweepers) of the Burmese army by crossing the Naf river to Bangladesh. I was present at the arrival of the first group of 250.000 refugees. Many have since returned ?mainly under pressure of the Banglades Government but as the Burmese intimidations continue new groups of Rohingya's keep looking for a save shelter in Bangladesh.
