Bangladesh briefs India on Rohingya

Bangladesh briefs India on Rohingya

The photos emerging from the border between the two countries show these people's desperate situation.

"It is expected that the United Nations act swiftly and undertake all necessary measures towards addressing worldwide concerns about the deteriorating situation in Myanmar", Zarif said.

Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua on Saturday summoned the ambassador of Myanmar, U. Win Myint, to the Foreign Office to lodge a strong protest over the ongoing violence against the Rohingya Muslims in the Rakhine state.

Almost 300,000 Rohingya Muslim have fled to Bangladesh and 30,000 non-Muslim civilians have been displaced inside Myanmar after the military launched a counter-offensive following attacks by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) insurgents on police posts and an army base on August 25. India's interventions are significant because the Rohingya issue deeply touches two very important neighbours-Myanmar and Bangladesh-both on the opposite sides of the problem.

Ali described actions following the militant attacks on security forces on August 25 as "revenge" by Myanmar troops.

US Open: Sloane Stephens bounces Venus Williams to reach final
Keys, the 15th seed in NY , was in devastating form, brushing past Vandeweghe 6-1 6-2 in just 66 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium. It could be as early as the grand slam that saw her beat the Open Era record earlier this year, the Australian Open.

Camps will be set up to provide aid for displaced Muslims inside Rakhine state, state-backed media said on Saturday, the first time in a 16-day crisis Myanmar's government has offered any relief for Rohingya scattered by violence, many to Bangladesh.

Myanmar on Wednesday announced that it is negotiating with China and Russian Federation to ensure they block any UN Security Council censure over the violence that has forced those people to flee.

Combined with a refugee population that fled earlier cycles of killings and burnings of villages in Rakhine, the new number means that close to 700,000 Rohingya refugees are concentrated in southeastern Bangladesh, where camps and settlements for displaced people are overflowing and humanitarian resources are being stretched very thin, according to United Nations and local officials.

"However, there is no report of any Rohingya Muslim being intercepted", he said.

Analysts say Suu Kyi is hampered by the politically incendiary nature of the issue in Myanmar and the fact she has little control over the military.

At least 15,000 supporters of the Islamist Islami Andolon Bangladesh party chanted slogans against Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi as they demonstrated in Dhaka and the town of Tongi to the north of the capital after Friday prayers.

Thailand has also said it was preparing to receive people fleeing the fighting in Myanmar.

Stanley Fischer resigns as vice chairman of the Federal Reserve
The resignation of Stanley Fischer, 73, creates another vacancy on the council that oversees the U.S. central bank. Fischer, who has served at the Fed for three years, is leaving before his term as vice chairman expires in June.
