By: Within story

Nearly a million Rohingya are trapped 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 busiest refugee camps in the world became even more difficult.

A huge fire broke out, which burned down some of the camp’s makeshift houses and caused extensive damage.

What does the future hold for Rohingya refugees?

And is the international community doing enough to help them?
