Myanmar: No respite for Rohingya Muslims as attacks continue

Fleeing for their lives

"The access we have in northern Rakhine State is unacceptable", Lowcock added after a small team of United Nations staff visited the majority-Buddhist Myanmar in recent days and described witnessing "unimaginable" suffering.

Dhaka: Bangladesh Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque on Friday said the solution to the Rohingya issue has to be found in Myanmar as it was created there.

He added he believed a "high level" United Nations team would be able to visit the region in "the next few days".

Under that agreement almost a quarter of a million people were repatriated from Bangladesh to Myanmar between the early 1990s and 2005, he said.

The arrival of more than half a million Rohingya Muslims from Buddhist-dominated Myanmar since 25 August has put an huge strain on camps in Bangladesh where there are growing fears of a disease epidemic.

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.

The UN has described the government-sanctioned crackdown on Rohingya as "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing".

The attacks prompted a vicious response by Myanmar's authorities, resulting in clashes and death of hundreds of Rohingya, while hundreds of thousands have fled the conflict area.

The World Health Organisation also says cholera is also a major risk.

Over half a million Rohingyas have fled Myanmar since August 25 amid the recent spike in violence in the country's western state of Rakhine.

Local officials in Rakhine said Monday's tour includes meetings with relatives of victims allegedly killed by Muslim militants during the violence against Mro and Daignets minority Hindu communities in Maungdaw township.

But Bangladesh minister Mahmood Ali said there had been a repatriation offer in what he called "friendly" talks in Dhaka with the representative of Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Bangladesh will build a single, enormous refugee camp to house around 800,000 Rohingya refugees as a Bangladeshi minister warned his country was struggling to deal with the flood across the border.

They plan to expand an existing camp near the border town of Cox's Bazar so that it can accommodate around 800,000 people.

"I think the way India is now approaching on the Rohingya issue, we are extremely happy", Bangladesh foreign secretary Shahidul Haque said.
