BANGKOK/YANGON -- Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees suffer escalating violence and deteriorating conditions at camps in Bangladesh, years after a deadly crackdown by Myanmar's military forced them to flee the country.

The International Court of Justice resumed hearings Monday on the alleged genocide by Myanmar's military against the Rohingya. Still, with any final ruling regarding Myanmar's responsibility likely to be years away, there is no clear end in sight to the group's plight.
