    Bangladesh and Myanmar are working on a plan to send hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees back to Myanmar.

    The UN and rights groups say the plan is flawed because it does not guarantee their protection when they return.

    The UN says the root causes of persecution such as lack of citizenship must be addressed first or the Rohingya may suffer more violence.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford reports Kutupalong Refugee Camp, Bangladesh.
