  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “HRW says UN shared Rohingya data without their ‘informed consent’” – below is their description.

    Human Rights Watch says the United Nations improperly collected and shared data from more than 800,000 Rohingya refugees with their host country Bangladesh, which passed it on to Myanmar, the country they fled, and is calling for an investigation.

    Over the past three years, the UN refugee agency has registered hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees in Bangladeshi camps, enabling Dhaka to provide them with identity cards needed to access essential aid and services.
