Fire burns through Rohingya camp in Bangladesh, leaving thousands homeless

Ukhia (Bangladesh) (AFP) – Thousands of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh have been left without shelter after a suspected arson attack ripped through their camp burning nearly 800 homes. Bangladesh is home to around a million Rohingya, many of whom fled a 2017 military crackdown on the Muslim minority in neighbouring Myanmar that is now subject to a UN genocide probe.
