United Nations fears 'further exodus' of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar into Bangladesh

United Nations fears 'further exodus' of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar into Bangladesh”

At the request of the government of Bangladesh, IOM is hosting the Inter Sector Coordination Group, which is coordinating the work of aid agencies responding to the humanitarian crisis triggered by the influx.

"If at any stage, the Burmese government is inclined to peace, then ARSA will welcome that inclination and reciprocate", the group said in a statement.

In 2014 Dhaka banned marriages between Bangladeshis and Myanmar's Rohingya Muslim refugees following claims that members of the persecuted community were attempting to Wednesday to gain citizenship in the mainly Muslim nation. This week Bangladesh reported 4,000-5,000 Rohingya were crossing the border daily after a brief lull in arrivals, with 10,000 more waiting at the frontier.

30 security posts and an army camp were attacked August 25- a coup launched by rebels killing approximately 12 people. An equal number had previously fled Myanmar since 1978.

Worldwide aid agencies say some 515,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh in six weeks since the end of August and the United Nations said it was bracing for a possible "further exodus".

"ARSA extremist terrorist" Einu had been "urging people to run" across the border to Bangladesh, said the statement published on the office's Facebook page.

Myanmar denies the Rohingya citizenship, describing them as "Bengali" interlopers.

More than half a million Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh in the last six weeks, an exodus that has spiralled into one of the world's most urgent refugee crises. And given how vulnerable the Rohingya, who have managed to take refuge in our land, are, ruling out such a possibility might be disastrous.

The UN resident coordinator in capital Dhaka, Robert Watkins, said Bangladesh should look for new sites for the upcoming refugee camps instead of expanding the existing one.

Myanmar rejects that. It says more than 500 people have been killed in the fighting, a lot of them "terrorists" who have been attacking civilians and torching villages.

"The situation is very bad", said Kazi Abdur Rahman, a senior official in the Bangladesh border district of Cox's Bazar, where most of the Rohingya are settled.

After the completion of the new camp, covering an area of about three thousand acres, it will be the world's largest, bigger than Bidi Bidi in Uganda and Dadaab in Kenya.
