Rohingya refugees stand by remains of Monday's fire at a refugee camp in Balukhali, southern Bangladesh, Tuesday, March 23, 2021.

At least 15 people have died and hundreds are injured and missing after a devastating fire destroyed thousands of shelters in a sprawling Rohingya refugee camp in southern Bangladesh, a UNHCR spokeswoman said.

At least 400 people were still missing and around 560 were injured by the fire, according to Louise Donovan, a spokesperson for the United Nations’ refugee agency.
