Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Deadly landslides, flooding hit Rohingya camps in Bangladesh” – below is their description.

Monsoon rains in Bangladesh have caused landslides at the world’s largest refugee camp, killing at least six people, mostly children.

Authorities have relocated thousands of Rohingya from the Kutapalong camp in Cox’s Bazar, home to more than a million refugees from neighbouring Myanmar.

The government says it is taking measures to find new quarters for the Rohingya and ensuring their camps are safe.
