Girls will be girls, even at the Rohingya camp

Update:

The dazzling displays of colour emerge amid the mud and monsoon rains of Bangladesh's refugee camps: vibrant flower headbands and elaborately-drawn makeup worn by young Rohingya girls. These girls are among 700,000 Rohingya Muslims who were forced to flee their homes after the military in neighboring Myanmar launched a brutal campaign of violence against the minority group last year. Many left all their cherished belongings behind, and their new lives in the cramped, chaotic camps are devoid of luxuries.
