Rohingya still trying to flee Myanmar

But Bangladesh border guards said they have seen no boats carrying Rohingya on the Naf river, which marks the Myanmar border, or in the Bay of Bengal for at least three days.

More than 420 000 members of the muslim minority have fled the abuses of the burmese army and militia of the buddhist, initiated after an attack by rebels on 25 August.

He said Rohingyas are illegal migrants and not refugees because "there is a procedure to get refugee status and that has not been followed".

Dhaka - The chief of United Nations refugee agency has urged for the creation of an atmosphere in Myanmar conducive to repatriation of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims fled to neighbouring Bangladesh for shelter.

On Sept. 14, India sent 53 tons of relief material to Bangladesh for Rohingyas, who poured into that country following the violence in Myanmar. However, Amnesty International on Friday blamed Myanmar's security forces and vigilantes for fires in Rohingya villages seen on recent satellite images.

Mohammad Salimullah and Shaqir, whose plea was filed by senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan, said they were claiming the rights to equality and life under Article 14 and 21, respectively, of the Indian Constitution, which apply to all citizens and non-citizens.

Five stats to tell your mates from Saturday's Premier League games
David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne have been regulars but even they are well aware of the need to stay on top of their games. The way Danilo played at left-back was outstanding too - how aggressive he was in defence and attack.

"We think, urgently, actions need to be taken to stop this violence and facilitate humanitarian assistance, lower the rhetoric, lower the tension and. start doing the hard work to solve the longer-standing problems", US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Patrick Murphy told reporters.

An official of India's federal investigations agency said it was seeking help from Muslim religious leaders to step up surveillance of the Rohingya.

India has stepped up security along its largely porous eastern border with Bangladesh and is using "chilli and stun grenades" to block the entry of Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in their homeland, officials said on Friday.

The latest influx of refugees have put huge pressure on Bangladesh, stretching the limits of worldwide aid agencies.

Western Rakhine, for years a hotbed of tension between Myanmar's Rohingya minority and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists, has been seized by crisis since the army launched a crackdown on Rohingya militants in late August.

Grandi said the refugee flow has slowed, but it is impossible to tell whether more would come. The UNHCR's voluntary repatriation policy states: "If refugees in complete freedom express the wish to return to their country of origin, it is essential that everything possible should be done to assist them in this regard".
