In this Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, photo, a newly arrived Rohingya family rests together in a transit camp in the Nayaprar refugee camp near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Rohingya Muslims, who have been loathed by Myanmar’s Buddhist majority for decades, are locked down in their villages _ sometimes even in their homes _ and prevented from farming, fishing, foraging, trade and work. The Myanmar government denies ethnic cleansing and says it is battling terrorists. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup)
