Rohingya refugees suffer in Thailand

At least eight of the 37,000 who fled anti-Muslim violence in Myanmar have died while detained in Thailand.

    An estimated 37,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar since January because of the anti-Muslim violence there.

    But according to reports, Thailand has also seriously mistreated the refugees.

    Since January, eight Rohingya men have died in detention centres run by the Thai immigration department, the report said.

    Al Jazeera's Veronica Pedrosa reports from southern Thailand.
