Dhaka protests as Myanmar helicopters violate Bangladesh airspace

21 dead after Rohingya boats capsized in Naf Rohingya crisis: Situation worsens in Myanmar as 18000 Muslims flee in 5 days

There are approximately 1.1 million Muslim Rohingyas in Myanmar, whom many consider the world's most persecuted minority.

Journalists and other outside observers have been unable to independently travel to the northwest of Myanmar's Rakhine state since an earlier outbreak of violence a year ago, although some aid programs had quietly been resumed.

A series of coordinated attacks by Rohingya insurgents on security forces in the north of Myanmar's Rakhine state on Friday and ensuing clashes triggered the Rohingya exodus, while the government evacuated thousands of Rakhine Buddhists.

On behalf of the Bangladesh people, President Hamid greeted the Turkish president and people on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha and thanked Erdogan for making the telephone call and extending his support for Bangladesh.

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.

New recruits are being trained and armed in the hillsides across the border in Myanmar's Rakhine State, Omar said, where a week of bloody conflict has left at least 110 confirmed dead and driven almost 20,000 civilians into Bangladesh.

The children, seven of them girls and two boys, were under four, said Teknaf Upazila Nirbahi Officer Jahid Hossain Siddiqui.

He will visit the famous Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon besides a Hindu Temple there and will also pay tributes at the grave of the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar.

The patients, mostly children and women, come with fever, cold, diarrhoea, minor cuts and scrapes and skin diseases, he added.

BGB has set up a medical camp for the several thousand Rohingyas now stranded in no man's land along the Naikhyangchhari border and waiting to enter Bangladesh. Authorities in Bangladesh have warned that people are becoming increasingly desperate and attempting to escape by boat. The situation in the region sharply sharpened on August 25, when hundreds of militants from the Arukan army for solidarity Rohingya, which the authorities consider to be a terrorist organization, carried out attacks on 30 police stations.

A group of Rohingya refugees takes shelter at the Kutuupalang makeshift refugee camp in Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh.

He had said that around 40,000 Rohingyas were staying in India illegally.

India's Supreme Court has agreed to hear a plea challenging a government decision to deport all Rohingya Muslims living in the country after fleeing persecution in Myanmar.

Bangladesh is under intense worldwide pressure to allow the fleeing Rohingya to cross into its territory, but it has pushed a number of them back, in what rights groups say is a contravention of its global obligations.

Together with his wife and five-year-old daughter Abdullah they cooked sticky rice, fetched plastic sheets and empty water bottles, preparing for a 20 km (12 miles), days-long trek in the monsoon rain through the mountains to the border.

In 2012, 10 Rohingya men were killed after three Rohingya were accused of raping and murdering a Buddhist woman.

The foreign ministry said while Bangladesh has been cooperating with Myanmar in the security sector, such instances of "violation of sovereignty may affect the existing understanding and cooperation between the two countries".
