Topic: Rohingya huddled in Bangladesh camps fear plan to move them on


By Sanjeev Miglani KUTUPALONG, Bangladesh (Reuters) - More than 20 years after the first wave of Rohingya Muslims fled Myanmar, fear is spreading through the sweltering camps of mud houses where they found shelter in southern Bangladesh that they will soon be on the move again. The refugees worry the Bangladesh government wants them out of sight, perhaps to one of its islands in the Bay of Bengal, as the two countries row over what to do with a stateless minority whose search for security is driving a regional migrant crisis.
