Rohingya refugees: Choosing what to save and what to leave

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have been arriving in Bangladesh with minimal belongings they gathered in a last-minute rush. They say they had to flee to save their lives from assaults by the Myanmar military and the majority Buddhists population, claims the government denies.

The BBC’s Shalu Yadav and Neha Sharma met the refugees in unofficial camps and asked them about belongings they were able to bring and those they had to leave behind.
