The Hindu Rohingya who want to return to Myanmar

Hindu Rohingya who sought refuge in Bangladesh want to return to their Myanmar homes.

by

    Hindu Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh say they are desperate to go home. They had fled to Bangladesh fearing reprisals after they refused to join an armed Rohingya group.

    A plan to repatriate some of them to Myanmar - as part of a group of 2,200 Rohingya - was halted last November.

    However, hundreds of thousands of Muslim Rohingya are still afraid to go back after they were attacked by the Myanmar military two years ago.
