Rohingya risk lives to escape from Myanmar

Stuck in a country that does recognise their citizenship, minority Muslim group forced to find a better life elsewhere.

Close to 1.3 million Rohingya Muslims live an isolated existence in Myanmar. At the receiving end of government policies described by human-rights groups as ethnic cleansing, those who survive often live in absolute poverty. Thousands have fled the country, trying to find a better life.
