The top government official in Cox's Bazar, Mohammad Ali Hossain, said the bodies would be buried because no one had claimed them.

The crisis erupted after Rohingya rebels attacked 30 police stations last Friday, triggering a military response. More than 100 people, mostly insurgents, were killed.

"Shuffling all the blame on insurgents doesn't spare the Burmese government from its worldwide obligations to stop abuses and investigate alleged violations", said Phil Robertson, Human Rights Watch's Asia director, in a statement. This is because they got stuck in the border before they could enter.

Some Rohingya people with bullet and burn injuries have been admitted to different hospitals in Bangladesh in the last three days.

The group posts images online of its fighters wielding heavy weapons, but Myanmar accuses them of cruder warfare.

Bangladesh, which is already host to more than 400,000 Rohingya said it will not accept any more refugees, despite an appeal by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for Dhaka to allow Rohingya to seek safety. "But they [unidentified armed men] killed all of them [Kanu, his daughter, and son-in-law]", said Bakul Bala, wailing.

A further 20,000 Rohingya have massed along the Bangladeshi frontier, the United Nations added in statement, but are barred from entry as they run from burning villages and Myanmar army operations.

"They were carrying guns, bombs and knives".

"We have been living in Burma for generations".

"We also mobilised the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation", he said in the Mediterranean province of Antalya, according to state-run Anadolu Agency.

His identity card issued by the Myanmar government described him as "Indian".

Aid workers giving emergency shelter and food in Bangladesh said the refugees were in a "very desperate condition". Tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees are believed to be stuck at the border to Bangladesh.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud will hear the plea challenging the deportation on the grounds that the move is in violation of global human rights conventions and that the lives of these thousands of refugees would be in grave danger if they were to be sent back to Myanmar.

Photographs from the scene showed the bodies of several small children lined up on the ground, covered with sheets.

As many as 27,000 of the displaced people crossed the Bangladeshi border to camps in areas around Cox's Bazar, while a further 20,000 are in no-man's land between the two countries. Bangladesh also rejects them.
