The number of Rohingya refugees who have come in Bangladesh by land, river and sea from Myanmar’s Rakhine state since militant attacks there on August 25 stands at nearly 150,000. Many have died along the way. Others have found themselves detained by human traffickers, demanding payment for their rescue. Their destination is the Cox’s Bazar region, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya already live in makeshift camps, reliant on overstretched aid agencies.
