Rohingya crisis: Two years in limbo

  • Published at 11:11 am August 25th, 2019

On August 25, 2017, Rohingya Muslims started to arrivein Cox’s Bazar, the southernmost district of Bangladesh, crossing over from Myanmar’s Rakhine state in thousands to escape a violent military retaliation to a series of insurgent attacks. As of August 15, 2019, more than 740,000 Rohingyas have taken refuge in Cox’s Bazar, according to the UN refugee agency. Two years on, the memories of watching their own homes burn, fellow villagers tortured and killed, and running to an unknown land to survive still haunt the Rohingya refugees. Despite two attempts, they are now adamant not to return to Myanmar unless their demands for citizenship, safety and equal rights are ensured
