Bangladesh to move 800000 Rohingya into single camp

Myanmar's Rohingya beg for help: 'People are starving'

"I think the way India is now approaching on the Rohingya issue, we are extremely happy", Bangladesh foreign secretary Shahidul Haque said.

"The access we have in northern Rakhine state is unacceptable", Mark Lowcock, head of the United Nations humanitarian office, told reporters in Geneva.

Bangladesh has announced it would build one of the world's biggest refugee camps to house all the 800,000-plus Rohingya Muslims who have fled persecution in Myanmar. "The two sides have agreed to a proposal to set up a joint working group to coordinate the repatriation process".

Royce added that the Trump administration has promised $32 million in assistance - $28 million of which will go to Bangladesh, where roughly half a million Rohingya have fled from across the border since late August.

It wants to engage Pakistan regionally to divert its attention from the diplomatic front on Kashmir issue where Pakistan is making progress, he added.

"The Rohingya fled to Bangladesh without any legal documents and it is hard to prove their identity", he told AFP.

Up until now they've been living in a range of different refugee camps across southern Bangladesh.

"Not that it always becomes (a security threat), depends on how you manage it". It has not moved into a security area. "We want them to take back their citizens to their own homeland", he said.

The Bangladesh Foreign Secretary said there is a tendency to view such issues from the prism of radicalisation, but that obfuscates the fact that it is above all a humanitarian issue, involving women and children who "need support".

Despite not winning, Lewis Hamilton extended his championship to 34 points ahead of this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix . The four-times champion had gone into the Malaysian weekend 28 points behind his rival.

The attacks prompted a vicious response by Myanmar's authorities, resulting in clashes and death of hundreds of Rohingya, while hundreds of thousands have fled the conflict area. The predominantly Buddhist Myanmar considers them Bangladeshi, but Bangladesh says they're Burmese. While External Affairs Minister Swaraj had not mentioned the issue during her address at the UNGA, India's stance at UNHRC in Geneva was much more on the lines of what Bangladesh expected.

"It is important for the Myanmar security forces to handle the situation with restraint, focusing on the welfare of the civilian population", the Indian representative told the Council's 36th Session as per reports, even as it commended Bangladesh for extending humanitarian aid to such a large number from Rakhine.

The advisory commission led by Annan had recommended that the government hold perpetrators of serious human rights violations against Muslims in Rakhine accountable and ensure the right to freedom of movement for all residents of Rakhine.
