Bangladesh ratchets up efforts to stop Rohingya refugees spreading out

According to the United Nations almost 400,000 Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh since August 25 after fleeing a military crackdown launched by Myanmar's military in response to attacks by Rohingya rebels. We are also concerned about reports of extensive loss of life of civilians and the enormous suffering that is producing the displacement of thousands of people from their homes and livelihoods.

"They can not travel from one place to another by roads, railways or waterways", the order said, adding bus and lorry drivers and workers have been asked not to carry the Rohingya. In Cox's Bazar, where there are concentrations of refugees, the camps of fortune now extend to loss of sight.

Vaezi said that, given the current conditions, Bangladeshi officials and others believe that in addition to humanitarian aid, there should be a global action with the participation of the United Nations, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and various countries, to help stop the crimes being committed against the persecuted minority. "We are concerned with what is happening".

The government has declared Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army a terrorist organisation and accused it of setting the fires and attacking civilians.

At least 26 villages had been hit by arson attacks in the Rohingya majority region, the rights group said, with patches of grey ash picked up in photos marking the spot where homes had once stood.
