Rohingya Flee Refugee Camps In Bangladesh, As Myanmar Prepares For First Returnees


According to Reuters, dozens of Rohingya Muslim families on a list of refugees set to be repatriated to Myanmar later this week have fled from camps in Bangladesh where they were living, even as Myanmar prepares to begin receiving them. In late October, Bangladesh and Myanmar agreed to begin repatriation of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees who fled Myanmar to escape an army crackdown. The repatriation of the first batch of 2,000 refugees is set to officially begin on Nov. 15.
