The Rohingya : Exodus to Bangladesh 2017: 775036539_rohingyapb001.jpg

PALONG KHALI, BANGLADESH - OCTOBER 9: Thousands of Rohingya refugees fleeing from Myanmar walk along a muddy rice field after crossing the border in Palang Khali, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.  For years Buddhist majority Myanmar has struggled to deal with a deeply rooted hatred towards the Rohingya in western Rakhine state. The Muslim ethnic minority were always considered illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and denied the rights of citizenship. The refugee emergency unfolded in late August after an attack on state security forces by Rohingya insurgents, triggering a brutal military crackdown that has forced more than 650,00 of the country fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh creating the fastest cross-border exodus ever witnessed.
