Dhaka, Sept21:A truck filled with aid for Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh veered off a road and fell into a ditch Thursday morning, killing at least nine aid workers, hours after another aid shipment in the refugees' violence-wracked home state in Myanmar was attacked by a Buddhist mob.
"We are trying to ensure all possible supports for the Rohingya on humanitarian ground", the minister said adding that construction of new camps, water purification plants and toilet facilities was in progress.
He said also referred to the humanitarian assistance to Bangladesh in handling the Rohingya crisis. It seemed a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing", United Nations human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said.
The move came shortly before activists started accusing the social media giant of censoring posts about the military campaign against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar. "We don't have anything here except peace", Faizullah, who fled Myanmar in 2012, said.
Rohingya seeking to escape persecution in Buddhist-majority Myanmar have been trafficked or smuggled by road and sea to places like Thailand and Malaysia in the past.Читайте также: Greg Olsen suffered broken foot in Week 2
Turkey has been at the forefront of providing aid to Rohingya refugees and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan raised the issue during his address at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.
Aid groups say they are overwhelmed by the massive influx, and though the Bangladeshi government is building a new camp in the area it will be some time before it is fully equipped. He said traditionally a fishing community, Rohingyas have had a problem integrating with local Burmese population and a section has been systematically radicalised much to detriment of India's security.
Some 415,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since the ongoing violence broke out on August 25 when Rohingya rebels attacked police checkposts in Rakhine resulting in the deaths os 12 security personnel, CNN reported.
"When the Pakistani forces burned down our houses and killed our people, around 10 million people crossed the border into India".
Nearly 40% of all Rohingya villages in Myanmar's Rakhine State are now empty, a government spokesperson confirmed earlier this week.
He said there have been no clashes since September 5 in Rakhine, where the military has been accused of burning scores of villages to the ground sending terrified Rohingya villagers fleeing.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
