Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Bangladesh moves nearly 2,000 Rohingya refugees to remote island” – below is their description.
About 1,800 Rohingya refugees are being relocated to the island of Bhasan Char off Bangladesh, despite human rights groups raising concerns about the camp’s safety and security.
They are the second batch of refugees to be relocated from Cox’s Bazar, the world’s largest refugee camp.
The Bangladesh government says it has studied the suitability of the island and some refugees say they wanted to give it a shot as they are unable to find work in their former camp.
Al Jazeera’s Tanvir Chowdhury reports from the port city of Chittagong, Bangladesh.
