Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh: 'I believe they will suffer more'

Critics say the latest troop build-up on the Bangladesh border is a hostile message for the Rohingya and proof that repatriation to Myanmar is not an option.

    Hundreds of Myanmar soldiers are refusing to leave a Bangladesh border area where they have been since last week.

    Myanmar's government says they are staying because of intelligence reports of an imminent attack by Rohingya refugees.

    Critics say the troops presence is intimidation and proof that repatriation to Myanmar is not an option.

    Al Jazeera's Charlotte Bellis reports.
