MetadataShow full item record
About 620,000 Rohingya -- a predominantly Muslim ethnic group -- have fled violence in Myanmar this year in Asia’s worst refugee crisis in decades – an operation that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson described as “ethnic cleansing” in November. The stories of Rohingya persecution are familiar to Mohamad Hussain, 40, who lives in a one-bedroom apartment on East Rundberg Lane with two other men from Rakhine. One of them is Hami Dulla, 43, who is raising two children with his wife, Baraket Be, 33. The couple met at the Umpiem Mai Refugee Camp in Thailand, about 7 miles from the Myanmar border. Also living with them is Mohamed Zalar, 52, who is under medical treatment for bone disease and diabetes. A father of four, Zalar has been separated from his wife for 14 years.
