Rohingya crisis: Relocation plan meets opposition

As well as being stateless and homeless, the coronavirus pandemic is worsening the plight of Rohingya.

The Bangladeshi government wants to relocate more than 100,000 Rohingya refugees to a remote island in the Bay of Bengal.

But some are opposing the plan, while UN agencies are questioning whether the new site is suitable.
