Bangladesh's invisible people

Forty years after independence from Pakistan, many Urdu-speaking migrants from India still remain in refugee camps.

    Bangladesh has marked 40 years since proclaiming its independence from Pakistan after a nine-month war.

    Up to a million Urdu-speaking Muslims emigrated from India to what was then known as East Pakistan. They were caught up in the fighting - and to this day, many still remain in refugee camps.
