Workers on the Myanmar side of the border with Bangladesh laid bricks, dug ditches and drilled holes in building frames in preparation Wednesday for the possible repatriation of some of the Rohingya Muslims who have poured into Bangladesh in what's become the world's worst refugee crisis.There was no sign, however, of any of the nearly 700,000 Rohingya chased away by Myanmar security forces.Only refugees with identity documents, which most Rohingya lack, will be allowed back into Myanmar.More than 680,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh to escape a crackdown by Myanmar's military that began following attacks by a Rohingya militant group on Aug. 25 .Many in Myanmar see Rohingya as illegal migrants from Bangladesh, although many families have lived in Myanmar for generations.
