Refugees at Risk in Bangladesh: Daily Brief

Tens of thousands of refugees at risk in Bangladesh; Saudi Arabia's ruthless crackdown on rights; protests in Iran; demolition of Ai Weiwei's property & human rights in China; pregnant girls & adolescent mothers banned from school across Africa; news update from Zimbabwe; children are losing out on education in EU migration deal; and Venezuela's left-behind generation.

The authorities in Bangladesh should relocate Rohingya refugees living in a severely overcrowded mega camp to safer ground, says Human Rights Watch in a new report. The refugees, who fled a military campaign of ethnic cleansing that began a year ago in Burma, shouldn't have to face flooding and landslides.

Bangladesh is also making headlines because of abuses against reporters and photographers.

Across Iran, protesters have taken to the streets with increasing intensity in recent months.

The regime in China has demolished the studio of Ai Weiwei, one of the most outspoken and effective critics of the authorities in the country.
