FILE - In this June 13, 2012 file photo, Rohingya Muslims who fled Myanmar to Bangladesh to escape religious violence, sit in a boat after being intercepted crossing the Naf River by Bangladeshi border authorities in Taknaf, Bangladesh. Asia's more than 1 million ethnic Rohingya Muslims are considered by rights groups to be among the most persecuted people on earth. Most live in a bizarre, 21st-century purgatory without passports, unable to travel freely or call any place home. The Myanmar government regards Rohingyas mostly as illegal migrants from Bangladesh, while Bangladesh rejects them just as stridently. (AP Photo/Anurup Titu, File) less
