Saving A Life By Walking To Shore Carrying An Elderly Woman

A Rohingya Muslim man walks to shore carrying an elderly woman after they arrived Thursday in Bangladesh on a boat from Myanmar.

Nearly three weeks into a mass exodus of Rohingya fleeing violence in Myanmar, thousands were still flooding across the border Thursday in search of help and safety in teeming refugee settlements in Bangladesh.

Those who arrived Wednesday in wooden boats described ongoing violence in Myanmar, where smoke could be seen billowing from a burning village, suggesting more Rohingya homes had been set alight.
