Influx has come to a halt: Bangladesh

Influx has come to a halt: Bangladesh”

"Several Hindus who left due to this ethnic persecutions are also part of the ethnic Rohingya population that has fled Myanmar", the counter said.

"This is a fraction of the cases that are likely to be out there", she said.

India opened its border to let in Bangladeshis fleeing from the then East Pakistan in 1971.

The stateless minority has languished under years of discrimination in the mainly Buddhist country, where they are denied citizenship and struggle to access health care and other basic services.

"It's not safe here for them here."
Police have said they were arrested on suspicion of espionage - a charge rejected by the pair's lawyers. "Someone could take them while I sleep".

At Bangladesh government clinics supported by United Nations agencies in the Ukhia area, doctors reported treating 19 women who had been raped, said Dr. Misbah Uddin Ahmed, head of the main health complex there, citing reports from female clinicians.

The lines of frail and traumatised Rohingya streaming into Bangladesh have overwhelmed aid agencies and triggered alarm from world leaders, with ramshackle camps along the border swelling into one of the largest refugee settlements in the world.

Bangladesh's prime minister on Thursday proposed creating UN-supervised safe zones inside Myanmar to protect Rohingya refugees who are fleeing a military crackdown to seek refuge in her country.

"Despite huge challenges at the beginning, there was a phenomenal outpouring of local generosity and support", Grandi added.

Besides the working group, the Myanmar government will also organise a trip for foreign diplomats to Rakhine State next week. "But these efforts must be accelerated and sustained". This stretch lies between the two main land crossing routes between Myanmar (Maungdaw township) and Bangladesh (Bandarban District).

Densely populated Bangladesh is struggling to shelter all the refugees desperate for space to set up shacks, sparking worries in India that the influx could spill into its territory.

All these refugees were victims of oppression in their country of origin and none would have arrived with documents or papers required, but India did not send any of them back or refuse to take in any.

With heavy monsoon rains lashing Bangladesh, that help can not come soon enough for Rohingya mother Tahera Begum, 22, whose extended family live in a dirt-floored shack in a precarious settlement south of Kutupalong. By sheer chance he was unhurt.
