Caption

On November 10, 2017 at 1 pm, 60-70 Rohingya refugees arrive in Nayapara, Teknaf, Bangladesh, on a float made from bamboo cans. Following their departure from Myanmar, Burmese army soldiers had kept them trapped on the river for three hours, beat them, and then took away their paddle. They reached the Bangladesh shore by using their hands as paddles.
