Espen Rasmussen


A Rohingya fisherman living on the beach. He spends all day out in the ocean fishing. "It is much better to live here than in the camps. In this place, we are able to make a small living, and we are not harassed." Several Rohingya (Muslims from Burma) live along the beach on the road between Cox's Bazar and Kutupalong refugee camp. They can earn a little money (often less than a dollar a day) by fishing from sunrise to sunset. The Rohingya are persecuted by the Burmese junta at home and are not recognised as refugees by the Bangladeshi authorities. The two remaining official camps still house some 28,000 refugees, who live without freedom of movement, permission to work or basic human rights. In addition to those in the official camps, an estimated 200,000 Rohingyas live scattered across Bangladesh.
