AP PHOTOS: Portraits of Rohingya survivors of capsized boat

In this Oct. 1, 2017, photo, Rohingya Muslim woman Malika, from Myanmar’s Moidaung village, stands for a photograph at Kutupalong camp for newly arrived Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. Three of Malika’s children, aged six-months to six-years, drowned when the fishing boat they were traveling in, to make their escape from Myanmar, capsized on Sept. 28. “That’s when I knew something had gone terribly wrong. I knew we had gone too far when people started throwing up,” Malika said on smelling saltwater and realizing they were in the ocean when the boat lost its way. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
