Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh
Rehana Begum, 25, sits near her one-day-old unnamed daughter inside their shelter at Kutupalang unregistered refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, February 10, 2017. "We were in our home and suddenly the military came to our village and started shooting," said Rehana Begum, who fled her village of Jambuinna in Myanmar three months ago. "When we heard the sound of gun shots we immediately went to our relatives. We walked for four hours without any food and water to reach the border at 1 a.m. We paid $18 to a broker to cross." The figure is equivalent to 25,000 Myanmar kyat. Intercepted by Bangladesh border guards, Rehana Begum's family narrowly escaped being sent home. "They wanted to send us back, but then we heard gunshots from the Myanmar side and the guards released us, saying, 'Stay in Bangladesh and save your lives'," she said.
