Monsoon rains threaten Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh

Preparations have been under way to help protect refugees from flooding and landslides since February, but hundreds of thousands have been left to fend for themselves.

    Monsoon rains have arrived in southern Bangladesh, home to nearly one million Rohingya refugees from Myanmar.

    Preparations began in February to protect them from flooding and landslides ahead of the annual rainy season.

    But in the first major downpours, it became apparent that homes will be destroyed and families forced to move again.

    Al Jazeera's Charlotte Bellis reports.
