    Myanmar and Bangladesh have agreed on a repatriation deal for half a million Rohingya civilians who reportedly fled military atrocities in Rakhine state.

    The UN has described the crisis as the world's fastest developing refugee emergency.

    But human rights organisations are concerned that the deal may leave Rohingya worse off.
