Bangladesh to limit movement of Rohingya

Bangladesh to limit movement of Rohingya

According to the United Nations, more than half of the refugees are children, and more than 1,100 have arrived alone after trekking mud roads and hills for days.

"I hope that as leaders' wives, we can rally humanitarian efforts to contribute positively to the process and thus mobilize the global community", she said, according to a statement from the Presidency.

On Aug. 27, Pope Francis appealed for help for "our Rohingya brothers and sisters", and added, "Let us ask the Lord to save them, and to raise up men and women of goodwill to help them, that they may be given full rights". Unicef says 60 percent of the Rohingyas fleeing Myanmar are children.

Cavosuglu said that Turkey had sent aid to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, and an official visit by Turkey's First Lady Emine Erdogan, to one such camp, had created awareness about their plight internationally.

Bangladesh has been overwhelmed by the arrivals Rohingya Muslims - the highest number of refugees to have entered the country in decades - since violence erupted in Buddhist-dominated Myanmar's Rakhine state on August 25. "If families can't meet their basic needs, the suffering will get even worse and lives could be lost". United Nations says there are some 240,000 children living in dire conditions.

Authorities in Bangladesh kicked off on Sunday an immunization campaign among Muslim Rohingya refugees as an aid group warned that many could die due to a lack of food, shelter and water.

Pierce said the humanitarian response needed to be rapidly scaled up.

"Our field research backs what the satellite imagery has indicated - that the Burmese (Myanmar) military is directly responsible for the mass burning of Rohingya villages in northern Rakhine State", said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch.

Officials in Washington have been careful not to undermine the weak civilian government of Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, which took office a year ago, ending five decades of ruinous army rule.

The leaders were stopped for "not following the rules for providing relief", a government minister later explained.

At the very outset of Rakhine violence Indian government sided with Myanmar government with its premier's visit to Myanmar regarding the ongoing Rohingya crises in Myanmar's Rakhine state.

"We know Myanmar's armed forces are creating this crisis to place Suu Kyi in a hard position".

The political party founded by retired officers and trounced by Suu Kyi's party in the 2015 election, could be expected to take heart to see her support eroded by the crisis.
