from CTV News

Thank you Bill Pearson, P.Geo. for submitting the following article.

More than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled into Bangladesh since an outbreak of violence that human rights officials have condemned as ethnic cleansing. Many Rohingyas have ended up at Kutupalong refugee camp near the Myanmar border. But the camp's few water sources are under pressure, and with the region's dry season already underway, there are fears that the remaining reservoirs could soon evaporate. more
