Shah Porir Dwip, Bangladesh
Pictures of the Year: Persecuted Rohingya Muslims flee violence in Myanmar
Nobi Hossain wades through the water carrying his elderly relative Sona Banu as hundreds of Rohingya refugees arrive under the cover of darkness by wooden boats from Myanmar to the shore of Shah Porir Dwip, in Teknaf, near Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh, September 27, 2017. Reuters photographer Damir Sagolj: "Dangerously overloaded boats come from the other side of Naf River under the cover of darkness, to avoid coast guards. Everything happens very quickly and in almost total silence - the refugees first help their sick, elderly and children to get off the boats, then everyone wades through the water towards the beach. This man was carrying his relative - an elderly, exhausted woman. After reaching the beach, she was given some help and the family continued towards the relief centre in a local Islamic school in Shah Porir Dwip."
