U.N. humanitarian report says more than hundred thousand Rohingya refugees huddled in squalid, muddy camps in Bangladesh will be in grave danger from landslides when the mid-year monsoon season begins.

The report said a high percentage of the land is unsuitable for human settlement as risks of flooding and landslides are high and are further aggravated by the congestion and extensive terracing of the hills.

Aid workers say the camps sheltering the new arrivals are completely inadequate.
