A further influx of Muslims from the Rohingya minority from Burma this week to neighbouring Bangladesh, amid fears the death of some of them caused by the sinking of a boat in the river while trying to escape from the growing violence that has killed at least 86 people and forced about 30 thousand to flee.
The current violence in Burma is the most serious since the killing of hundreds of people in clashes between the local population in Rakhine State in the west of the country in 2012.
The soldiers will flow to the region along the border with Bangladesh in response to the coordinated attacks on three border posts in the ninth of October / October that killed nine policemen.
Sarajul said Islam, who arrived on Monday to a refugee camp is not registered in the coastal town in southern Bangladesh Tknav he did not know anything about his family of eight people after soldiers set fire to their home in Rakhine.
He added, “I do not know where my wife and children … somehow managed to cross the border and save my life.”
The United Nations said the fighting wave recently resulted in the displacement of nearly 30 thousand people so far and affected thousands.
John Makesyk president of the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Office of the United Nations said in Cox’s Bazar resort in the south of the country, “it is difficult for the Government of Bangladesh, as is the case now accommodate large numbers and it seems to me that there is no other choice because the alternative is death and suffering of the solution.”
He added, “The only thing I can do now is to help them and protect them.”
Many consider Burma’s predominantly Buddhist Rohingya Muslims in the country and 1.1 million illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.
