Bangladeshi authorities have intercepted several suspected traffickers seeking to transport refugees from squalid camps in Cox's Bazaar, where nearly one million Rohingyas are living -- almost all refusing to go back to Myanmar out of fear for their safety and rights.
Myanmar has said the 2017 crackdown was aimed at rooting out insurgents who attacked military posts.
It has signed a repatriation agreement with Bangladesh to return Rohingya refugees, but so far virtually none have volunteered to go back.
United Nations investigators have said the violence amounts to "genocide" and called for the prosecution of top generals.
