Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh afraid to go home

The UN has accused Myanmar of ethnic cleansing and has said it is too early for refugees to be returned until their safety can be guaranteed.

Rohingya refugees who escaped to Bangladesh are due to start returning to Myanmar next week.

More than 650,000 are living in makeshift camps after fleeing violence and persecution over the past five months.

But the UN and rights groups are raising grave concerns about the repatriation process.
