Bangladesh authorities began relocating Rohingya families to an island in the Bay of Bengal, Thursday, December 3.
Refugees were removed from the Kutapalong camp in Southern Bangladesh via bus.
The island in the Bay of Bengal can accommodate 100,000 people, just a fraction of the amount of refugees who have fled Myanmar. The island also is regularly submerged during monsoon rains.
Global rights groups and the United Nations are urging Bangladeshi authorities against the relocation. (AP)
