Ethnic Chin refugees unsafe in Myanmar, unprotected in India

Many Chin refugees say they are fleeing religious persecution in Buddhist-majority Myanmar.

    The Rohingya crisis in Myanmar has made headlines worldwide, but the Rohingya are not the only minority being persecuted.

    Ethnic Chin refugees have crossed the border into India in their thousands since the 1960s.

    Myanmar's crackdown on the Rohingya has discouraged them from even thinking about returning home.
