Bangladesh Islamists call to arm Rohingya

Bangladesh Islamists call to arm Rohingya”

Mark Lowcock, head of the United Nations humanitarian office reiterated an appeal for access to the population in northern Rakhine, saying the situation was "unacceptable".

Rohingya Muslim refugees exhausted by their journey rest upon arrival on the Bangladeshi shoreline of the Naf river after crossing the border from Myanmar in Teknaf on September 30.

A small United Nations team visited the crisis-wracked region in majority Buddhist Myanmar in recent days and described witnessing "unimaginable" suffering.

Refugees are living in camps near the border amid claims that hundreds of villages were torched in an apparent attempt to force Muslims out of the Buddhist-majority country.

Myanmar officials have said they attempted to reassure groups trying to flee to Bangladesh but could not stop people who were not citizens from leaving.

After the talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Tusk, the two sides underscored the need for early return of the displaced people of all communities to northern Rakhine state in Myanmar.

Myanmar has tightly controlled access to the state since then, as the army kickback in the Buddhist-dominated country sent half a million Rohingyas fleeing to Bangladesh.

Cholera is a risk, amid fears of disease spreading in the rain-drenched camps where aid workers are trying to install sanitation systems, a spokesman for the World Health Organisation said.

Myanmar has come under worldwide criticism for barring aid groups, journalists and other outsiders from independently traveling to the region to see the situation there.

Thousands of Islamist hardliners marched in Bangladesh's port city of Chittagong Friday calling for the government to arm Rohingya Muslim refugees fleeing a crackdown in Myanmar's troubled Rakhine state.

Hindus and ethnic Rakhine were also among the dead.

Swaraj had earlier expressed India's full support to Bangladesh's stance over the Rohingya issue as worldwide concern grows over the fate of the refugees.

Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's leader, was criticised for not doing more to intervene - but has since spoken out against any human rights abuses. Kamal said the new camp, which will be located in the country's Cox's Bazar district close to the Myanmar border, would be ready by the end of October.

However, Haque clarified that Bangladesh was willing to cooperate with Myanmar but at the same time wanted the refugees to "go back as soon as possible".
