March 1, 2018 -- Bangladesh convierte una isla azotada por ciclones en la Bahía de Bengala en hogar para 100.000 musulmanes rohingya que han huido de la violencia en el vecino Myanmar. La isla conocida como Bhasan Char, que significa "isla flotante", se formó recientemente en el mar por la concentración de sedimentos procedentes del Himalaya. Es una porción de tierra que se inunda anualmente en la temporada de monzones.

British and Chinese engineers are helping prepare the island to receive refugees before the onset of monsoon rains, which could bring disastrous flooding to ramshackle camps further south that now teem with about 1 million Rohingya. The rains could start as early as late April.
