Bangladesh sends Rohingya Muslim refugees to deserted islands

The government of Bangladesh has sent Rohingya Muslim refugees to remote and deserted islands in the Bay of Bengal.

More than 1400 refugees set sail for the island of Bhasan Char, the fourth group sent to the island, where the Bangladeshi government plans to eventually move 100,000 Rohingya.

Bangladesh also aims to decongest refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, which shelter approximately 1 million Rohingya.

The relocation began in December and have been criticized by human rights groups who say that many of the refugees are being forced to move against their will.

The government of Bangladesh says the relocation is voluntary. But many refugees have talked about the move as being coerced.
