Rohingya refugees are facing fresh turmoil as the monsoon season fast approaches in Bangladesh.

Some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have lived in refugee camps there since last August, after fleeing neighboring Myanmar.

They escaped from soldiers and gunfire, mobs that stormed through their villages, killing, raping, and burning.

Living in clusters of bamboo and plastic huts, built amid endless waves of steep hills, the refugees are ill-equipped for a deluge that, in an average year, dumps anywhere from 40 to 60 centimeters of rain per month.
