The chilling reality for unaccompanied minor Rohingya refugees.

No indication if these wee children are unaccompanied or whether their parents are near as they cross into Bangladesh after a gunshot was heard on the Burma side. Absolutely chilling.

We have to raise child welfare for unaccompanied children as a major concern of refugee rights. We cannot allow them to become trafficking victims like those orphaned in the Indonesia/Sri Lanka tsunami & African children processed by the EU in Italy where over 10,000 are unaccounted for.
