Floods make thousands homeless in Bangladesh Rohingya camps

29/7/2021 19:32
        Days of heavy rainfall have pounded Rohingya refugee camps in southern Bangladesh, destroying dwellings and sending thousands of people to live with extended families or in communal shelters.
        
        The U.N. refugee agency said, in the 24 hours until Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 centimeters (11.8 inches) of rain fell on the camps in Cox's Bazar district hosting more than 800,000 Rohingya. That's nearly half the average July rainfall in one day, and more heavy downpours are expected in the next few days and the monsoon season stretches over the next three months.
        
        It said six people died in the camps earlier this week — five people in a landslide caused by the rains and a child swept away by floodwaters.
