What does the future hold for Rohingya refugees?

Nearly a million Rohingya are stuck in refugee camps in Bangladesh after fleeing violence in Myanmar.

Cox’s Bazar in southern Bangladesh is home to about a million Rohingya refugees, who fled a military crackdown in Myanmar in 2017.

But on Sunday, life in one of the most crowded refugee camps in the world got even more difficult.

A huge fire broke out, burning down some of the camp’s makeshift homes and causing extensive damage.

So, what does the future hold for Rohingya refugees?

And is the international community doing enough to help them?
