Rohingya reflect: Six months since Myanmar exodus

Hundreds of Rohingya Muslims are still pouring over Myanmar border into Bangladesh every week, bringing accounts of torture and murder, six months after a military crackdown sparked the massive refugee crisis.

    Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are living day-to-day, six months on since the start of a brutal crackdown by the Myanmar military.

    The United Nations has condemned the atrocities, calling them a textbook case of ethnic cleansing.

    Nearly 700,000 Rohingya have crossed the border into Bangladesh since August.

    We tracked down some of those we met when the exodus began.
