A massive fire ripped through a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, on March 22, 2021. The UN refugee agency UNHCR said the blaze has left at least 15 people dead and 400 missing. The fire in the southeastern city of Cox’s Bazar is the third blaze to hit the camp in four days, forcing at least 50,000 people to flee and follows two other major fires in January.

Local government officials said the latest blaze was the biggest seen since the influx of Rohingya refugees, a Muslim minority from Myanmar, in 2017.
