Before And After The Devastating Fire At A Rohingya Refugee Camp

Satellite imagery shows destruction caused by a massive fire that swept through a Rohingya refugee camp at Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. The U.N. refugee agency said Tuesday at least 15 people died in the blaze and at least 400 remain missing.

Hundreds more are injured and about 45,000 people have been displaced. They are among about 1 million of the minority Rohingya Muslims who have fled from neighboring Myanmar, most of them to escape a brutal military crackdown in 2017. The photos by Planet Labs Inc. were taken on Nov. 12, 2020, and March 23, 2021, a day after the fire.
