Noor Haba (11) carries her younger brother to shore after arriving on Shamlapur Beach in a fishing boat. She set sail with her family, and group of 25 other Rohingya refugees, from Rakhine State in the early morning arriving five hours later. The United Nations reported that by 29 September 2017 more than 500,000 Rohingya refugees had crossed the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh. They are fleeing a campaign by the Myanmar military that began on 25 August 2017, responding, according to the military, to attacks by Rohingya militants against several police posts in which 12 officers were killed. The UN, however, have described the military action as 'a textbook example of ethnic cleansing', stating that the campaign is 'clearly disproportionate'.
