Wedding in a Rohingya refugee camp
In most ways, the happiest day of Shofika Begum and Saddam Hussein's lives mirrors that of couples getting married the world over. The big difference is where the two are living and celebrating their wedding - at a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh.

Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh
Rohingya refugees Saddam Hussein, 23, and his wife Shofika Begum, 18, pose in their temporary shelter at the Kutupalong refugee camp near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, December 16, 2017. In most ways, the happiest day of Shofika Begum and Saddam Hussein's lives mirrors that of couples getting married the world over. The bride's hands are covered with decorative patterns inked in henna, the groom is perfumed and the guests feast and dance the night away in a colourful tent.
