Second major fire hits Rohingya refugee camps

In a video shared by an eyewitness, a fire was seen burning a school building in B-Block of the Cox's Bazar refugee camp in the early hours of Monday. Local residents were also seen sifting through the charred rubble after day break.

Last Thursday (January 14), a huge fire in Nayapara Camp destroyed more than 550 homes, 150 shops and a facility belonging to a non-profit organization, according to the U.N. Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

More than a million Rohingya live in the mainland camps in southern Bangladesh, the vast majority having fled Myanmar in 2017 from a military-led crackdown that U.N investigators said was executed with "genocidal intent", charges Myanmar denies.
