    Thailand has begun deporting tens of thousands of migrants from neighbouring Myanmar.

    Most had fled persecution or simply crossed the border in search of a better life, but landed in a cycle of corruption and crime instead.

    As Al Jazeera discovered, many end up in camps run by traffickers on the Myanmar side of the border region, and have to bribe officials to get back into Thailand.
