Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh: Thousands of Rohingya refugees staged protests for "justice" on the first anniversary of a Myanmar military crackdown that forced them to flee to camps in Bangladesh.

About 700,000 of the Muslim minority crossed the border after attacks by the Myanmar military and Buddhist groups that the United Nations has likened to ethnic cleansing.

Thousands held marches and attended rallies chanting "We want justice from the UN." At one site, a giant banner proclaimed: "Never Again: Rohingya Genocide Remembrance Day. 25 August, 2018."
