The bodies of Rohingya refugees are carried for burial in Balukhali camp on January 12, 2018 in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. 30 year old Nurhaba, 8 year old Amin Sarif, 5 year old Dilsan Bibe and 1.5 year old Arjunan died in the late night of January 11th when their tent in a transit camp caught fire. Their family arrived in Bangladesh 3 days ago from Rasidong, Myanmar. They left their village 18 days ago after the Myanmar military and local Buddhist beat Nurhaba's husband, Adbul Rahim, and refused to let him harvest his fields. For 15 days they walked to the border and took shelter in other villages, with hardly enough food or water to sustain them along the way. When they were finally able to cross over into Bangladesh by boat, Abdul Rahman said they felt happy and confident about their future. Over 650,000 Rohingya have crossed the border to Bangladesh since August last year, fleeing the violence at Rakhine State when their villages were attacked and many worry that they will face further reprisals if they return to Myanmar. The refugee camps in Bangladesh no longer seem temporary as thousands of tents made of plastic and bamboo spread across the undulating terrain and long wooden bridges connect parts of the camps divided by water. Existing camps such as Nayapara and Kutupalong have swelled to accommodate the new arrivals since the Myanmar military began its campaign in late August while the Rohingya queue for hours to get rations due to little access to clean water, health care or food and the refugee camps turn into mud-baths whenever it rains. International aid groups and health workers have estimated at least 6,700 Rohingya had met with violent deaths and warn of potential outbreaks of cholera and other preventable diseases due to squalid conditions.
