Hundreds of Rohingyas return ‘home’
Dudu Mia, a refugee camp leader in the coastal town of Teknaf, said nearly 1,000 Rohingya – mostly young men – had returned to their home villages to collect elderly family members left behind earlier. “Most of them are hoping to bring their relatives back here. It’s been four months and they have barely even talked to their parents,” Mia said. Myanmar army halted its crackdown on the Rohingya community in the north of Rakhine last week.
