about the video

Heart-breaking picture of a 16-month-old baby has emerged who drowned while his family tried fleeing ethnic violence against Rohingyas in Myanmar. The baby Mohammad Shohayet, drowned along with his mother, uncle and three year old brother. Only the father has survived. The family was trying to cross into Bangladesh through Naf River. Parallels are being drawn between the Rohingya baby, and the Syrian boy, Aylan Kurdi who drowned while trying to cross the Mediterranean sea in 2015.
