Bangladesh restricts movement of Rohingya refugees

As Dhaka struggled to cope with the scale of the "unprecedented crisis", dozens of refugees were found in three towns hundreds of kilometres from the Myanmar frontier, stoking fears that thousands of Rohingya Muslims will move from the border region into the the mainland of Bangladesh.

Turkey's First Lady Emine Erdogan on Saturday called on the wives of world leaders to mobilize the global community over the plight of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Bangladesh is yet to sign the International Refugee Convention of 1951 and the International Refugee Protocol of 1967 and there is no rule how the refugees will live in Bangladesh and therefore, it is very hard for the government to tackle the refugee crisis, Advocate Tanjim said in the petition.

Myanmar says the crackdown is a response to last month's deadly attacks on police by militants in the northern state and denies it is targeting civilians.

Meanwhile, Hasina said that the entire world is raising its voice against the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and was calling upon the government to take their citizens back.

The U.N. has described the violence against the Rohingya in Burma as ethnic cleansing - an organized effort to rid an area of an ethnic group.

They were lucky to create any chances at all in their 2-0 loss to Swansea with how boring they looked going forward. On each occasion, Palace have had vast amounts of possession and done little constructive with it.

The Myanmar government has accused global aid workers as assisting terrorists.

General Min Aung Hlaing, Myanmar's Army chief, said on his Facebook page on Saturday that Rohingya was never an "ethnic group" in Myanmar. According to the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef), over 200,000 of the estimated 400,000 Rohingyas who fled violence in Myanmar to Bangladesh since August 25 are children. Many of them are traumatised, malnourished and weak.

The United States has called for the protection of civilians and a deputy assistant secretary of state, Patrick Murphy, is due in Myanmar next week.

Modi took sides on Suu Kyi's government and declared all out support to Myanmar.

Ethnic cleansing is not recognised as a separate crime under worldwide law but allegations of ethnic cleansing as part of wider, systematic human rights violations have been heard in global courts. CAFOD partner, Caritas Bangladesh, is responding to the refugee crisis by providing emergency aid. A police official told Reuters the two were found to be working on tourist visas and police were investigating.
