Nautical Aliya, carrying aid workers and emergency supplies, docks at Chittagong port, about 90 miles (140km) from Cox’s Bazar where thousands of Rohingya Muslims have taken refuge.

 

About 70,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar since October last year following the Burmese army’s ‘clearance operation’
