Myanmar Police Shoot Seven Protesters in Rakhine

Myanmar is just a game for China

The foreign minister highly appreciated the strong support the OIC countries extended to Bangladesh in coping with the influx of tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar's Rakhine State, the High Commission said.

"The agreement stigmatizes the Rohingya people as would-be terrorists and includes unrealistic demands that these people, who fled for their lives with no possessions, show proof of residency to the very government that denied them of their citizenship, making it hard for them to believe that they will be protected upon returning home. They should return our land and also rebuild our homes", he said.

The UN and various human rights organisations have said there is clear evidence of rights abuses in Myanmar, with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights calling the Army's operations "ethnic cleansing" and saying there were indications of "genocide".

"However recurring plans to move the refugees to uninhabitable islands or to return them to Burma without key citizenship rights and protections remained a concern", he added.

The current Rohingya exodus began when Myanmar's security forces launched a campaign in late August in response to the Rohingya rebels' attacks on security posts in Rakhine, home to an estimated one million members of the Muslim minority not recognized by the Myanmar authorities.

The Rohingya, described by the United Nations as the world's most persecuted people, have faced heightened fears of attack since dozens were killed in communal violence in 2012.

Still, the hospital opened a special "flu zone" on Monday where nurses can quickly treat patients with mild influenza symptoms. Though flu deaths are typically concentrated in the elderly population, that's less the case than usual this season.

Ali said the displacement of Rohingya people from Myanmar has soured relations between the two countries.

Speaking to SkyNews, Twigg said: "We need massive reassurances before there can be any suggestion of refugees returning and any return must be genuinely voluntary".

"Myanmar has reiterated its commitment to stop outflow of Myanmar residents to Bangladesh", it said.

The Rohingya crisis erupted after Rohingya insurgent attacks on security posts on August 25 in the western state of Rakhine triggered a fierce military response that the United Nations denounced as ethnic cleansing. It would be the first camp built in the repatriation process. At least 30 people have died from the disease, .

"Where are considerations for protection of the Rohingya from Myanmar security forces who months ago were raping and killing them?" said Phil Robertson, deputy director of the group's Asia Division.
