Rohingya ethnic minority, who have just crossed over to Bangladesh from Myanmar, cook food.
Shah Porir Dwip, Dhu-AlHijjah 12, 1438, Sep 3, 2017, SPA — Aid officials said relief camps were reaching full capacity as thousands of Rohingya refugees continued to pour into Bangladesh on Sunday fleeing violence in western Myanmar.
Some 73,000 people have crossed the border since violence erupted Aug. 25 in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, SPA reported, citing AP, which quoted U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokeswoman Vivian Tan as saying.
Another aid official said Saturday that more than 50 refugees had arrived with bullet injuries and were moved to hospitals in Cox’s Bazar, on the border with Myanmar.
Aid workers said that large numbers of refugees required immediate medical attention as they were suffering from respiratory diseases, infection and malnutrition.. (T/RS5/RS1)
