Five years after crackdown: Will Rohingya refugees ever return to Myanmar? | DW News

Five years ago, Myanmar’s army launched what it called “clearance operations” against the Muslim-minority Rohingya people in Rakhine State, which borders Bangladesh.
Civilians were murdered, girls and women were raped and entire villages were razed to the ground. About 700,000 Rohingya fled to neighboring Bangladesh, where most remain to this day in refugee camps.
The attitude toward Rohingya people in Myanmar seems to be changing. However, the return of refugees from neighboring Bangladesh five years after the army drove them out is not expected any time soon.
