14000 lone children among Rohingya refugees: Bangladesh

New wave of Rohingya refugees flock to Bangladesh camps

During his visit, he met State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Tatmadaw (the country's armed forces) Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, among other officials, as well as with representatives of Myanmar's civil society, the resident diplomatic community and representatives of worldwide non-governmental organisations.

More than 580,000 refugees have arrived in Bangladesh since August 25, when Myanmar security forces began a scorched-earth campaign against Rohingya villages.

A United Nations team took witness statements from Rohingya refugees last month, and another human rights mission is now on the ground, gathering evidence from some of the 582,000 Rohingya who have fled into Bangladesh in the last two months.

Amnesty International (AI) accused Myanmar's security forces of committing crimes against humanity as hundreds of thousands of Rohingya men, women and children fled the country.

Also on Tuesday, Malaysia's deputy prime minister told Malaysian media the government would propose that the U.N. Security Council adopt a resolution to create a U.N. -monitored "safe zone" so hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees could return to Myanmar unharmed.

The HRW said that 90 per cent of the affected villages were in the Maungdaw town, adding that Rohingya houses were burned while adjacent areas inhabited by the Rakhine Buddhists were left intact.

On Monday, the European Union announced it was reviewing military cooperation with Myanmar, as the bloc called on Myanmar to bring to justice the perpetrators of crimes against the Rohingya.

"It is time for the worldwide community to move beyond public outcry and take action to end the campaign of violence that has driven more than half the Rohingya population out of Myanmar", Amnesty said. The line of refugees stretches for a few kilometres.

But authorities in southeastern Bangladesh, which has borne the brunt of the world's fastest-growing refugee crisis, said many more new arrivals - about 40,000 refugees - had crossed over from Myanmar within the past 72 hours.

Several said that they were stopped by Bangladeshi border guards and spent the night in muddy rice fields. UNICEF said it has received just seven per cent of the $76 million it needs. They have long faced discrimination and persecution.
