Rohingyas Were Shot, Hacked With Machetes, and Then They Made for the Border
Relief worker Pavlo Kolovos watched as one of the world’s worst refugee crises unfolded in real time.
Nearly 700,000 ethnic Rohingya Muslims fled violence in Myanmar for Bangladesh last fall. The influx created the world’s fastest-growing humanitarian disaster. Pavlo Kolovos, the head of mission for Médecins Sans Frontières in Bangladesh, was on the ground as they arrived. He describes what he saw on our podcast this week.
Correction, Aug. 31, 2018: The Médecins Sans Frontières mission head in Bangladesh is Pavlo Kolovos. A previous version contained a misspelling of his name.
