The use of rape by Myanmar’s armed forces has been sweeping and methodical, The Associated Press found in interviews with 29 Rohingya Muslim women and girls now in Bangladesh.

They were interviewed separately, come from a variety of villages in Myanmar and now live spread across several refugee camps in Bangladesh. Yet their stories were hauntingly similar. The military has denied its soldiers raped any Rohingya women.

The nation’s homeless population increased this year for the first time since 2010, driven by a surge in the number of people living on the streets in Los Angeles and other West Coast cities.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released its annual Point in Time count Wednesday, a report that showed nearly 554,000 homeless people across the country during local tallies conducted in January. That figure is up nearly 1 percent from 2016. Of that total, 193,000 people had no access to nightly shelter and instead were staying in vehicles, tents, the streets and other places considered uninhabitable. The unsheltered figure is up by more than 9 percent compared to two years ago. Increases are higher in several West Coast cities, where the explosion in homelessness has prompted at least 10 city and county governments to declare states of emergency since 2015.

Scenes from the California wildfires today. For the second time in two months, wind-driven fires tore through communities, leaving homes in ruins and sending tens of thousands of people fleeing for their lives.
There were no immediate reports of any deaths or serious injuries in the blazes burning in Southern California’s Ventura County, on the edge of Los Angeles and in inland San Bernardino County.

In this Thursday Nov. 30, 2017 photo, people take part in an annual parade celebrating the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad, in Sale, near Rabat, Morocco. #APPhoto @mosaabelshamy
A large parade with historic roots takes place in the Moroccan city of Sale each year to mark the birth of the Prophet Muhammad, an occasion Muslims around the world observe as Mawlid an-Nabi.
Sale, a bustling city of about 890,000 residents across the Bouregreg River from the kingdom’s capital, Rabat, transforms as residents join the procession. A Saadian dynasty monarch who ruled Morocco in the 1570s is believed to have imported the procession from the Ottoman Empire.
The parade has been held continuously since then. Men carrying wooden structures that resemble the minarets on mosques lead it off. Colorful candles arranged like mosaic tiles and spelling out the names of Allah, Muhammad, and members of the Moroccan royal family adorn the towers.
Children in traditional dress and musicians with horns and drums take part in the choreographed spectacle, which swells in size as people chase and merge with the festive throng moving through the old medina quarter. Families take to the streets and cheer from balconies.
The parade that takes place on the eve of the date recognized as Muhammad’s birthday — Dec. 1 this year — is the main event of a weeklong festival that gives local bands the chance to perform and receive tips from patrons.

Rohingya Muslims have faced state-supported discrimination in the predominantly Buddhist country for decades. Though members of the ethnic minority first arrived generations ago, Rohingya were stripped of their citizenship in 1982, denying them almost all rights and rendering them stateless. They cannot travel freely, practice their religion, or work as teachers or doctors, and they have little access to medical care, food or education.

The exodus of Rohingya Muslims started Aug. 25 when insurgents attacked dozens of police posts in Myanmar. The retribution from Myanmar’s authorities was swift and brutal. Hundreds of Rohingya villages in Rakhine state have been set on fire. Fleeing Rohingya have told stories of arson and rape and shootings by Myanmar soldiers and Buddhist mobs. The violence, which the U.N. describes as ethnic cleansing, has pushed more than 600,000 Rohingya into Bangladesh.

Although Rohingya Muslims have lived in Myanmar for decades, the country’s Buddhist majority still sees them as invaders from Bangladesh. The government denies them basic rights, and the United Nations has called them the most persecuted minority in the world. Just since August, after their homes were torched by Buddhist mobs and soldiers, more than 600,000 Rohingya have risked the trip to Bangladesh.

Caption: A Rohingya Muslim Kefayet Ullah stands next to the graves of his 25-year-old brother Jarullah and 21-year-old sister-in-law Ayesha Bibi at a makeshift cemetery near Cox's Bazar's Tumbru area, Bangladesh. The family had already been in their hasty shelter on the mud bank near Naf River for days before Jarullah and Bibi decided to go slip back across the border to their village in Myanmar briefly for a quick bath and clean clothes before Eid, only to be killed by Myanmar soldiers and Buddhist monks in an attack witnessed by their cousin. Ullah said he couldn’t bear the thought of leaving his loved ones behind, and so risked his life to return and carry their bodies back so they could bury them in peace. #APPhoto @bernatarmangue

Rohingya have fled en masse to escape persecution before. Hundreds of thousands left Myanmar in 1978 and again in the early 1990s, though policies subsequently allowed many to return. Communal violence in 2012, as the country was transitioning from a half-century of dictatorship to democracy, sent another 100,000 fleeing by boat.

As part of a project looking at the homeless crisis on the West Coast, AP photographer Jae C. Hong (@jaechongpix) traveled to Seattle, San Francisco and to Los Angeles to shoot intimate portraits of the people with no permanent homes. He used a special lens to focus on their eyes. For the next few days, we are sharing some of the stories those people told:

James Harris
Age: 54

Home: A tent in Hollywood, California

James Harris likes to open with “God bless you” before asking for money. It makes him feel better to offer something in exchange for a handout. “It’s hard panhandling and taking things from people,” he said.

Harris said he has had AIDS for 30 years, he said. When medication stopped working, he got depressed and was evicted. Now he feels like an outcast, vulnerable and struggling to survive. “I’ve been beaten, robbed, chased,” he said. “People steal your tents and your tarps and your clothes. I’ve lost everything I owned.” He’s hoping that as a veteran he can get permanent housing, though he missed an earlier opportunity because a stint in a shelter disqualified him from being considered chronically homeless.

He gets by on $900 a month from Social Security and whatever he can scrounge up. A little extra cash might get him some crack to smoke at night. “I put needs first, drugs last,” he said.

He spent the remaining $105 from a recent check on a suit and put on makeup to look like Two-Face, the villain from Batman comics. He wanted to “make an honest living” with others dressed as superheroes or movie characters jostling for tips on Hollywood Boulevard.

But it didn’t go well. He said he didn’t earn a dime.

John Ruiz

Age: 9
Home: An RV with his parents and siblings in Mountain View, California, the home of Google

The fourth-grader dreams of going to college. He knows it’s the path to a better job and a home that’s not on four wheels.
His father is a minimum-wage landscaper who moved the family to an aging camper after they were evicted from an apartment where the rent kept going up, nearing $3,000 a month. His mother is five months pregnant.
The family parks the recreational vehicle outside an apartment building where three bedroom apartments rent for up to $6,000 a month.

John Ruiz’s friends at school were surprised to hear he lived in an RV. “I thought they were going to laugh, but they were OK with it,” he said.

The worst thing about living in a camper is that it’s cramped, hot in summer and cold in winter. He and his brother have to walk to get water and dump their trash.
“At least we have a home we can live in,” he said. “I have a bunch of toys. Mostly the good part is there’s a little stove where we can eat.” John dreams of his family having a successful life together and maybe ending up in a mansion _ a home that might have a swimming pool and backyard. Or at least one big enough to have his own room.
“I want to have a happy life,” he said.

Alicia Adara

Age: 33

Home: A tent in Seattle

Alicia Adara says she ended up on the street after losing a custody fight for her two children to her ex-husband.

She panhandles to survive and also gets $198 a month in food stamps. She showers at Mary’s Place, a nonprofit daycare center for homeless. Sometimes she takes sponge baths at the Seattle Ferry Terminal.

The tent she sleeps in is not the home she wants, but right now it’s the one she chooses _ and it beats living in a shelter. “I don’t do shelters. I feel like I’m in jail,” she said. “I‘ve been like basically a prisoner all my life. I need to do this. I need to be out here. It’s freedom.” As she sat in an alley in downtown killing time, she said she thinks she’ll do this for another year and then hopes for a permanent job. She doesn’t have a clue what that will be.

She takes a long pause to consider it and then says, “dog sitter.” Story by Jae C. Hong and @brianmelley

Harrison Perkins
Age: 31
Home: A Seattle street

The path to the streets began with a prescription for the powerful painkiller OxyContin, Harrison Perkins said.
He has a rare heart disease and pain in his legs. He began supplementing his medication with heroin, though that cost him dearly.
“That’s why my belongings are gone,” he said. “I don’t have a watch on my hand. I don’t have a wedding band. I got rid of whatever jewelry I had.” He never finished college studies in computer science, but managed to do computer work for years.
He and his wife lost a place to live when she accidentally set fire to her mother’s kitchen and the landlord wouldn’t let them return.
Perkins said he’s been clean for six months, but it’s hard to remain sober on the street. He’s thinking of moving back to his native Cleveland and hoping to stay with his brother there. Perkins concedes that his drug problems have given his brother reservations, so he’s not sure that will happen.

He and his wife can’t afford a place to live in Seattle on the $760 disability check he gets each month from Social Security, and he’s resorted to begging.
The couple can’t stay together at a shelter and don’t want to be exposed to bed bugs and lice outbreaks there, so they opted to live on the street, where their possessions have been stolen.
“Drugs are offered to me more than a place to live,” he said. “Even in my worst drug addiction days, I always kept a roof over my head. ... We literally have nothing. This is what we’ve got. It’s not worth it.” For more, visit APImagesBlog.com, link at profile.

Tammy Stephen

Age: 54
Home: A Seattle homeless encampment

They call her “mom.” Tammy Stephen, whose children have grown up, cooks and looks after the denizens of Camp Second Chance as if they were her own.
“I’m not going to let my family go hungry,” she said. “We’re doing our best to get through life. I don’t let people mess with my family.”
She has known the cycle of dependence herself and been pulled down in it by partners, she said.
Six times she’s lost a place to live because her third husband got high and got them evicted.
The final time came when things started looking up. Her husband had just landed a job, but spent his first paycheck on meth and got them booted again. She went her own way at that point.
“I broke the cardinal rule. I met him at rehab,” she said. “One of the first things he said was, ‘Don’t fall in love with me. I’m not good.’ I should have listened.”
She didn’t get sober until her third try in rehab
She’s been homeless more than three years and has been talking with other campers about pooling money to rent a place, but it can cost $1,200 to $1,500 for tiny apartments.
At one point, she and a daughter were living in someone’s storage room for $700 a month. It was hard to afford on her monthly $734 disability payment.
“Most homeless people I know aren’t homeless because they’re addicts,” she said. “Maybe they were at one time. Most people are homeless because they can’t afford a place to live.” Story by Jae C. Hong and @brianmelley

The homeless are easy to pass by on the street. It’s harder when you look into their eyes. Behind each person is a story that however vague offers some glimpse into their lives.

Hong (@jaechongpix) traveled to Seattle, San Francisco and to Los Angeles to shoot intimate portraits of the people with no permanent homes. He used a special lens to focus on their eyes.

Moi Williams
Age: 59
Home: Streets of Los Angeles
Across from the elegant Millennium Biltmore hotel, Moi Williams reclined on his side, resting on an elbow on concrete steps leading to a park in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

Rather than stand out in contrast to the business people hustling by or commuters heading home, he fits in as one of the many homeless people who idle their days in Pershing Square.

Williams’ stare is as empty as the details he offers about his life.

He said he’s been on the streets three or four years. His beard and hair are starting to gray and a cigarette is propped behind his left ear.

He had a job, but “it just got away,” he said. He figured he’d find another, but it never came along. “I’m not fighting, like I used to,” he said. “When I was younger, before I got a job, I used to fight a lot.” Now he is trying to beat drugs and alcohol.

Williams would like a place to live and some money, but said he doesn’t stay at shelters and hasn’t signed up for any public assistance. For now, he’s mostly comfortable where he is. “I’m not bothering nobody,” Williams said. “I’m not being bothered.” #APPhoto @jaechongpix
