The Rohingya : Exodus to Bangladesh 2017: 775054013_msfclinic_rohingyapb001.jpg

KUTUPALONG, BANGLADESH - OCTOBER 4: Hasina worried about her son, Mohammed Anas,11 months, suffering from acute pneumonia in the pediatric - neonatal unit at the Kutupalong MSF clinic on October 4, Kutupalong, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been providing comprehensive basic healthcare services at their Kutupalong clinic since 2009. 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.
