Will the Rohingya be safe on a remote Bangladeshi island?

Rights groups condemn Bangladeshi government’s decision to transfer Rohingya refugees to flood prone island.

The lives of nearly a million Rohingya who escaped Myanmar to Bangladesh are being uprooted again.

The Bangladeshi government has started moving thousands of them to a remote island that’s prone to cyclones and floods.

It is rejecting criticism from rights groups that the new camp on Bhasan Char is unsafe.

Why is there still no permanent solution to the crisis, three years after the Rohingya were forced from their homes?
