Pictures of the Year: Persecuted Rohingya Muslims flee violence in Myanmar

Rohingya refugees stretch their hands to receive aid distributed by local organisations at Balukhali makeshift refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, September 14, 2017. Reuters photographer Danish Siddiqui: "I was going past one of the refugee camps when I stopped to photograph this aid distribution along a road. As the aid distribution got a bit chaotic, volunteers started throwing water bottles from the truck towards the refugees. I placed myself to get the newly made camp in the background as it showed how newly arrived Rohingyas living in these small makeshift shelters were in desperate need of aid." REUTERS/Danish Siddiqui
