Shah Porir Dwip, Bangladesh
Pictures of the Year: Persecuted Rohingya Muslims flee violence in Myanmar
Women carry children through the water 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: "Overloaded boats carrying Rohingya refugees from Myanmar emerged from total darkness as they arrived to Shah Porir Dwip, a small fishing village in Bangladesh. Exhausted and terrified, refugees helped each other to the beach. From almost every picture I took that night, from the faces of women and children and from their body language, you could read the terrible fear. We can only imagine what these people have been through." REUTERS/Damir Sagolj/File Photo SEARCH "POY ROHINGYA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "REUTERS POY" FOR ALL BEST OF 2017 PACKAGES.
