Gone and Almost Forgotten
Myanmar's Muslim minority, the Rohingyas, are among the poorest and most forgotten of the troubled nation's refugees.
Hundreds of thousands seek shelter in Bangladesh, where their conditions are often dire. Others have been fleeing to Thailand and Malaysia across the years. The website www.rohingya.org collects and disseminates information about them.
Adoption "Gone Wrong"
Hong Kong's Korean community has been outraged by the case of Dutch diplomat and his wife who have handed back an eight-year old girl whom they adopted to a baby. The couple adopted the child in South Korea, where they were then working, when she was four months old. At the time, they believed they could not have children. The couple has since had two kids of their own, and last year handed the adopted girl to social workers in Hong Kong, saying the adoption had "gone wrong".
