Hundreds Missing, Tens of Thousands Displaced by Fire in Rohingya Refugee Camp

HeadlineMar 23, 2021

In news from Bangladesh, a massive fire in a Rohingya refugee camp has killed at least 15 people and displaced 50,000. Al Jazeera reports 400 people remain missing. The fire began in a camp in Cox’s Bazar and then spread to two others, destroying thousands of shelters. Nearly a million Rohingya refugees live in southern Bangladesh after fleeing a military crackdown in Burma in 2017. It was the third fire at the camps in recent days. One survivor told Reuters, “When we were in Burma … they destroyed everything. Now it has happened again.”
