They've come by the hundreds of thousands on a dangerous crossing. The Rohingya of Myanmar are a Muslim minority on the run, unwelcome at home in majority Buddhist Myanmar, and in neighboring Bangladesh, where hundreds of thousands have fled, seeking refuge. CNN correspondents Ivan Watson, Clarissa Ward, and Alexandra Field have continued to cover the tragedy firsthand, speaking to the Rohingya people, seeing what life is like in the squalor of refugee camps—a crisis the United Nations has called a textbook example of ethnic cleansing. How did we get here, and what happens next, for more than a million men, women, and children with nowhere to call home?
