Bangladesh Protests Myanmar Airspace Violations as Tensions Mount Over Rohingya

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres speaks at a news conference ahead of the 72nd United Nations General Assembly at UN headquarters in New York

More than 300,000 Rohingya have poured into Bangladesh since the latest flare-up in violence on August 25, adding to around 300,000 refugees already living in Bangladesh, close to the border with Myanmar.

"We have been told to build the shelters in 10 days".

"It is appalling that the country's own government is conducting atrocities on the innocent Hindus and Muslims of Rohingya area that only proves systematic ethnic cleansing", Maulana Khalid Rasheed Farangi Mahali, the imam of the mosque, was quoted as saying after the protest. In Cox's Bazar, where there are concentrations of refugees, the camps of fortune now extend to loss of sight.

A Reuters photographer on the Bangladesh side of the border said he could see huge banks of dark smoke billowing up over Myanmar territory on Friday, while global aid organisations said the refugees kept coming. "We are concerned with what is happening".

Rights group Amnesty International said evidence pointed to a "mass-scale scorched-earth campaign" across the north of Rakhine that was unmistakably ethnic cleansing. There are reports of villages being burned to the ground and the military deliberately targeting civilians, but access to the region is limited, so the reports can't be independently verified.

He said, "No legal sanction for the [general council ] meeting and those who attended are not general council members". Saravanan said it is a fallacy to say that the party is going to join hands with them.

It said it also had credible reports of Rohingya militants burning the homes of ethnic Rakhine and other minorities.

Suu Kyi has also been widely condemned by the worldwide community for not speaking out against the ongoing violence. The campaign against the Muslim insurgents is popular at home.

The Rohingya Muslims, who have taken refuge in Cox's Bazar and Teknaf border areas in Bangladesh after they fled the barbarous persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine state, are now suffering due to an absence of food, shelters, medicines, sanitation facilities and clean water.

"With the influx increasing daily, UNHCR is appealing for an initial amount of $30 million for the emergency humanitarian response in Bangladesh until the end of year", an agency spokesman said in Geneva. Thousands of protesters in Dhaka urged Bangladesh's government to go to war over the issue, while a rally in Pretoria, South Africa, by hundreds of people turned violent with police firing stun grenades to disperse an angry crowd.
