This unnamed, eighteen-day old, Rohingya baby was in his mother's womb while crossing the Myanmar-Bangladesh border and was born in Balukhali Rohingya refugee camp, Cox's Bazaar, Bangladesh. Every day nearly sixty babies are born as stateless in the Bangladeshi refugee camps of Bangladesh. The future of these babies are called into doubt. Neither Myanmar nor Bangladesh consider these new-borns as their citizens.
