Rohingya refugees at risk of trafficking

As thousands flee Western Myanmar over sectarian violence, many refugees are exposed to predators.

    The UN describes the Rohingya as one of the world's most persecuted minorities.

    Thousands of people have been forced from their homes in Western Myanmar as a result of violence between Buddhists and Muslims, with many travelling to neighbouring Bangladesh. Many of them are extremely vulnerable.
