Hungry Rohingya refugees rush for handouts at Bangladesh camp

The World Food Programme (WFP) distributed food and water to the latest Rohingya refugees to arrive in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh on Friday (September 15).

Amid chaotic scenes, people struggled to get close to trucks where aid workers were distributing emergency supplies of water and rice.

Nearly 400,000 Rohingya Muslims from Buddhist-majority Myanmar have crossed into Bangladesh since August 25, fleeing a Myanmar government offensive against insurgents branded “ethnic cleansing” by the UN.
