    Background: The first of 40-thousand Bihari refugees have moved into a new camp at Mohammadpur, near Dacca. It's only half a mile (800m) from the central camp at Mohammadpur, from which all the inhabitants of the new camp will come. The new camp, still under construction, is on land previously owned by the Binharis, the Muslim minority in Bangladesh. The land was a confiscated by the government of Bangladesh on the grounds that Biharis aided the Pakistan army during its occupation of what was Pakistan's eastern sector.

    The new camp promises a better life for the Biharis.
