Rohingya refugee Abdu Rahaman, 73, poses for a photograph at Leda refugee camp in Bangladesh, October 15, 2017. Rahaman, a merchant from Maungdaw, was ambushed while walking on a mountain path with other refugees. A machete thrown at his feet severed three toes as he ran from his attackers. With his foot bleeding through a tourniquet made from his longyi, or sarong, Rahaman walked for two more hours, before his nephew and friends carried him across the border. "Our future is not good," he said. "Allah must help us. The international community has to do something." REUTERS/Jorge Silva SEARCH "ROHINGYA INJURIES" FOR THIS STORY.

Men cover their faces against strong winds after Cyclone Phailin hit Gopalpur village in Ganjam district in the eastern Indian state of Odisha October 13, 2013. India's strongest storm in 14 years left a trail of destruction along the country's east coast on Sunday, but little loss of life was reported after close to a million people took refuge in shelters. Cyclone Phailin was expected to dissipate within 36 hours, losing momentum as it headed inland after making landfall on Saturday from the Bay of Bengal, bringing winds of more than 200 kph (125 mph) to rip up homes and tear down trees.

Eighteen-year old Atchara who is eight months pregnant stands outside her home in Chiang Mai's Fang district October 1, 2012. Thailand has the second highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the world, according to Thai government data. A World Health Organization (WHO) report shows the average number of pregnancies for every 1,000 girls in the 15-19 age group is 65 but that figure rises to 70 in Thailand. Teen pregnancy and early child marriage are among the major obstacles that deny the rights of 75 million adolescent girls worldwide to education, says Plan International, a development charity that works with communities in 45 countries to alleviate child poverty. The first U.N. declared International Day of the Girl will be marked on October 11, 2012 with a focus on rights of the girls around the world. Picture taken October 1, 2012.

Girls wear traditional clothes as they sit behind a picture of ousted Thai premier Thaksin Shinawatra during a religious ceremony at a temple in the village of Suan Mon near Udon Thani in northeastern Thailand June 25, 2011. Saffron-robed monks chanted and young women in silk sarongs stretched out their arms in traditional Thai dance moves, but the big event was the voice on a scratchy telephone line from another continent. "Be prepared. Good things are about to come," billionaire former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra said from his Dubai mansion in a telephone call to a Buddhist temple where 38 communities declared their allegiance to Thaksin, formally becoming "Red Shirt Villages" in solidarity with the red-shirted movement that backs him. In a sign of his support, the number of "Red Shirt Villages" has doubled to more than 700 in two northeastern provinces since a Reuters report uncovered the phenomenon on June 7.

A foreign worker from Bangladesh carries groceries he just bought from a vendor at his quarters in Kuala Lumpur June 19, 2011. From minding babies to erecting skyscrapers, Malaysia's economy has been supported over the last three decades by a foreign workforce drawn mainly from Indonesia, the Philippines, Bangladesh and Nepal as an industrialisation drive created a wealth of low-paying jobs shunned by locals. But as more employment opportunities open up in other Asian economies, Malaysia's appeal as a destination for manual jobs is waning. Picture taken June 19, 2011.

A man walks past campaign posters for members of the main opposition party, the United National Party (UNP), before the start of the UNP's final rally before parliamentary elections in Colombo April 5, 2010. Sri Lanka's opposition on Monday vowed to deny the ruling coalition a two-thirds majority at this week's parliamentary election, saying it would give an already powerful president too free a hand to rule. Sri Lankan voters will elect a parliament on April 8 for the first time since the government defeated the Tamil Tiger separatists last year.

Sri Lanka's indigenous inhabitants, the Veddas, preserve a direct line of descent from the island's original Neolithic community dating from at least 16,000 BC and probably far earlier according to current scientific opinion. Today only a few remaining indigenous inhabitants still manage to preserve their cultural identity and traditional lifestyle despite relentless pressure from the surrounding dominant communities.
