Pope Francis has started on a six-day trip to Myanmar and Bangladesh on Monday. Refugees at the congested Kutupalong Rohingya refugee camp in Southern Bangladesh say they are hopeful that Pope Francis’ visit to Myanmar and Bangladesh will help bring peace. Since violence erupted in late August, more than 600,000 Rohingya men, women, and children have crossed over into Bangladesh from Myanmar, carrying with them tales of persecution, rape, and murder by the Myanmar military and Buddhist vigilantes.
