Pictures of the Year: Persecuted Rohingya Muslims flee violence in Myanmar
Rohingya refugees carry their child as they walk through water after crossing the border by boat through the Naf River in Teknaf, Bangladesh, September 7, 2017. Reuters photographer Mohammad Ponir Hossain: "I walked around for an hour on the muddy and very slippery path to get to the river bank. When I reached it I heard the sound of people who had arrived by boats. Because of the mangroves I couldn't see them properly. After some time I saw more than hundred people come out of the mangroves and start walking into the water with children, elderly people and their belongings. Due to low tide boats were unable to reach to the dry land. This Rohingya couple with a child had to get off the boat into a mangrove first; then walk through the water to reach dry land."
