Heavy monsoon rains put Rohingya refugee settlements in danger
Continuous rains in Bangladesh have caused dozens of landslides and destroyed hundreds of refugee shelters in Cox's Bazar. With four months of the monsoon season yet to come, more downpours are expected. Some 740-thousand Rohingya Muslims have been living in the camps since they fled a military crackdown in Myanmar's Rakhine state in 2017. Myanmar has said it will send a high-level delegation to the settlements by the end of July, to explain to the refugees how they can return home.
