More than 500,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to neighboring Bangladesh in the past year, majority in the last three weeks, after security forces and allied mobs retaliated to a series of attacks by Muslim militants last month by burning down thousands of Rohingya homes in the predominantly Buddhist nation. "Rather, Myanmar is laying landmines along the border to stop the return of Rohingyas to their homeland", she said.
"Bangladesh has zero tolerance against terror".
The body added that among the 420,000 Rohingyas who crossed into Bangladesh, 250,000 of them were children. "We will do the same with ARSA and other Rohingya jihadi groups", Imam, who enjoys cabinet status in Bangladesh and is said to be close to Hasina, told IANS in an interview.
Dhaka's capacity to accommodate refugees "is bursting at the seams", with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina under increasing pressure from opposition parties close to Pakistan ahead of 2018 general elections, Sajjanhar said.
"The UK is, and will remain, a very strong supporter of continuing the European Union arms embargo" on Myanmar, he added. More than 800,000 Rohingya now live in Bangladesh.
Foreign aid groups said that made them a target of local hostility - and many have reined in or stopped their operations for safety reasons. "Bangladesh is ready to join any joint initiative on the issue".
The government said it may file in sealed cover the details of the security threats, based on inputs gathered by various security agencies.
West Bengal's child rights body today moved the Supreme Court against the Centre's move to deport all Rohingya Muslims to Myanmar, saying the entire community can not be branded as terrorists.
He said the violence would "sow seeds of hatred and chaos that may well consume the region for generations to come and threaten the peace of us all".
London said it had "deep concern" about human rights abuses and would not be resuming the military courses unless there was an "acceptable resolution" to the ongoing Rohingya crisis.
Mr Khan also acknowledged that Aung San Suu Kyi's promise to accept only refugees "verified" under an earlier process which requires them to produce documents few possess does pose a problem. "Out of humanity, we opened the border", Mr Khan said.
"We are taking up the case of Rohingyas on humanitarian grounds. This culture has developed through the huge distress we faced right from the days of the Bengal starvation engineered by the British", he said.
The funding "reflects the U.S. commitment to help address the unprecedented magnitude of suffering and urgent humanitarian needs of the Rohingya people", said the State Department's Acting Assistant Secretary Simon Henshaw on Wednesday at the ongoing UN General Assembly here.
