Rohingya inflow into Bangladesh continues

Rohingya inflow into Bangladesh continues

Straddling the border between Myanmar and Bangladesh, the Rohingya are effectively stateless as the two governments maintain their rightful home is in the other country.

The pictures from Human Rights Watch (HRW) appear to show burnt out patches of ground where buildings used to stand.

"There are now nearly 1 million Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh: the 582,000 (who fled Myanmar since August 25 this year) joined the 400,000 who had already fled there following previous periods of targeted attacks, notably in 2012 and 2016".

Myanmar's military government has maintained they are targeting militants, not civilians.

She said in a live televised speech on 18 September: "Since September 5th, there have been no armed clashes and no clearance operations".

"We can not come back to the House and say "Never again" when we have watched ethnic cleansing happen, and regret not taking greater action and using all the powers and influences that we all have here in the House", she concluded.

"We want to find out why the exodus is happening".

A United Nations team took witness statements from Rohingya refugees last month, and another human rights mission is now on the ground, gathering evidence from some of the 582,000 Rohingya who have fled into Bangladesh in the last two months.

The Sudan in previous list was not included in new list, while North Korea, Venezuela and Chad were added to new listing. The Justice Department vowed to appeal the Hawaii ruling Tuesday but did not immediately react to the Maryland case.

"Unsettled post-colonial questions and tensions fuelled by colonial powers of the past have been exploited by the military junta in Myanmar to keep ethnic rivalries simmering", Sanghera said. The line of refugees stretches for a few kilometers.

Numerous villages had both Rohingya and another ethnic group, the Rakhine, living in separate, segregated communities.

The government of Myanmar (also called Burma) has claimed that insurgents and the Rohingya themselves have been responsible for the fires - but has offered no evidence to support the claims.

An overcrowded boat carrying Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar capsized Monday in the Bay of Bengal near a Bangladeshi fishing village, killing 12 people, including six children, police said.

"These latest satellite images show why over half a million Rohingya fled to Bangladesh in just four weeks", Deputy Asia Director of HRW Phil Robertson said.

"It is time for the worldwide community to move beyond public outcry and take action to end the campaign of violence that has driven more than half the Rohingya population out of Myanmar", Amnesty said.
