19 dead as Rohingya boat sinks off Bangladesh coast

21 dead after Rohingya boats capsized in Naf

The latest clashes in Myanmar began last Friday when Rohingya militants staged deadly attacks on police posts, prompting raids on the community and searches by troops and police.

31 de agosto de 2017, 07:54Dacca, Aug 31 (Prensa Latina) Bangladeshi authorities have today recovered 17 other bodies of Rohingya refugees from Naf River, bringing the death toll from a boat accident on Myanmar border to 21.

The corpses of 12 children and eight adults were pulled early Thursday from the Naf River, Ariful Islam, commanding officer of the Bangladesh Border Guard in Teknaf, told CNN.

Although they have lived in Myanmar (Burma) for generations, the Rohingya are not among the 135 ethnic groups the Myanmar government recognizes by law, and most of the country's Rohingya are denied citizenship and freedom of movement. "We will make more arrest on the protesters as we investigate the incident", he said.

Yanghee Lee, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, said the humanitarian situation was deteriorating rapidly.

One arrival, Mohammed Rashid, 45, wore a surgical dressing under his eye, saying bullet splinters injured him after the Myanmar army opened fire on a group of Rohingya.

Rakhine state is home to Myanmar's 1.1 million Rohingya people, an ethnic minority that has for decades faced a government-sanctioned campaign of forced relocation, violence, and persecution.

On Wednesday, the bodies of two Rohingya women and two children washed up in Bangladesh after their boat capsized. I would like to express all my closeness to them, and let us all ask the Lord to save them and to inspire men and women of goodwill to help them, so that they may have their full rights.

The influx was triggered by a dramatic escalation in violence between the security forces and the insurgents.

"If human rights concerns are not properly addressed, and if people remain politically and economically marginalized, then northern Rakhine may provide fertile ground for radicalization, with people becoming increasingly vulnerable to recruitment by extremists", she said. "And it seems to be spreading from south to north".

The Myanmar government expelled global aid groups from the region earlier this week, accusing them of helping Rohingya fighters. Bangladeshi authorities have taken a hard line with Rohingya refugees, attempting to limit their numbers in their country. The Dumlupınar Battle on August 30, 1922 also saw invading Greek forces' eventual defeat at the hands of the Turkish army.

The International Organisation for Migration joined UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in appealing to Bangladesh to admit people caught on the border. They fear lack of accommodation and sanitation facilities may lead to abuse of young girls.
