Rohingya Muslims face abuse in transit

Refugees pay thousands of dollars to escape discrimination in Myanmar, but often face exploitation in Thailand.

    More than 35,000 ethnic Rohingya Muslims are known to have fled Myanmar this year. Most of them pay thousands of dollars to Thai human smugglers to help them escape discrimination and violence, but the refugees are often abused and exploited.

    Al Jazeera's Veronica Pedrosa visited one of the transit points in Thailand to investigate.
