Bangladesh backs India's stand on Rohingya issue: Foreign minister Haque

Fleeing for their lives

Myanmarese authorities, led by de facto leader and Noble peace prize victor Aug San Suu Kyi, have been tightly controlling access to the state since last month when purported attacks by Rohingya militants prompted a brutal military response that has forced over 515,000 Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh.

Suu Kyi, who has been severely criticised for her failure to curb the military crackdown, said last month that Myanmar would take back "verified" refugees.

The UN has described the exodus as the world's fastest-developing refugee emergency, slamming Buddhist-majority Myanmar for engaging in ethnic cleansing against its Rohingya Muslim minority.

A 3,000-acre camp at Kutupalong will be able to accommodate the huge influx of refugees, Bangladesh's secretary of disaster management and relief Mohammad Shah Kamal told CNN, including up to 300,000 who had already been living in Bangaldesh before the recent outbreak of violence.

The Rohingya are regarded as illegal immigrants in Myanmar and most are stateless. The government, however, blames the Rohingya for the violence, claiming the Muslims set fire to their own homes.

Northern Rakhine has been torn apart by violence since August 25, when raids by Rohingya militants sparked a massive army crackdown that the United Nations says is tantamount to "ethnic cleansing".

The stress on Bangladesh has been increasing as the inflow of refugees continues even after nearly more than 40 days after the first instance of violence on 25 August.

India had also called for implementation of the Kofi Annan Commission recommendations as a solution to the crisis.

Charities have warned of a food crisis across the border and say 281,000 people desperately need food, including 145,000 children under five.

It conveyed as much to New Delhi, which in fact led to modifications in India's stance including pressure on Myanmar to rein in the security forces, and humanitarian aid to Bangladesh.

United Nations -led aid bodies have appealed for $434 million over six months to help up to 1.2 million people - including 300,000 Rohingya already in Bangladesh before the latest crisis and 300,000 Bangladeshi villagers in so-called host communities.

Three groups of diplomats were taken to three different areas on Monday, said Ye Htut, district administrator of Maungdaw in Rakhine.

The attacks intensified after Rohingya militants killed 12 security officers during coordinated attacks on border posts, according to Myanmar's state media.
