Bangladesh Moves Second Group of Rohingya Refugees to Remote Island Amid Fears of Coercion

HeadlineDec 30, 2020

In Bangladesh, authorities are moving a second group of over 1,800 Rohingya refugees to a remote island hours away from the mainland. Around 1,600 refugees were sent to the island earlier this month. Activists say the refugees are being forced into moving and that they were locked out of their homes at the camps in Cox’s Bazar. International journalists have been barred from visiting the island. Over 700,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh in 2017 after a brutal and deadly crackdown by Burma’s military.
