Myanmar soldiers sentenced to 10 years for massacre of 10 Rohingya Muslims

Need more verification time for Rohingya repatriation, says Myanmar minister

Almost 700,000 Rohingya have fled Rakhine state and crossed into southern Bangladesh since August, creating one of the world's largest refugee camps.

The government usually refers to Rohingya Muslims as "Bengalis", a term that denies they belong to Buddhist-majority Myanmar and implying they are illegal migrants from Bangladesh.

Almost 700,000 Rohingyas have fled across the border from Myanmar's Rakhine state during a military crackdown that began in late August a year ago in response to deadly insurgent attacks on police outposts in the region.

Rights groups have said they are expecting many more refugees from Myanmar to attempt the risky sea crossings.

Win Myat Aye, the minister charged by Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi with leading rehabilitation efforts in the country's Rakhine State that the Rohingya call home, is likely to meet Bangladesh's foreign minister on Thursday, said the official, who declined to be identified, citing government policy.

The murders were part of a larger army crackdown on the Rohingya, beset by allegations of murder, rape, arson and looting, unleashed in response to Rohingya militant attacks on security forces in late August.

Aye is set to visit Bangladesh on April 11 and April 12 for a meeting with the ministers of foreign affairs and home affairs.

More than 700,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed into Bangladesh since August 25 a year ago, when ethnic conflicts in Rakhine sparked the most rapid human exodus seen since the Rwandan genocide in 1994.

A court in Yangon has been holding preliminary hearings since January to decide whether the two Reuters reporters will be charged under the colonial-era Official Secrets Act, which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison. Myanmar set up two reception centres and what it says is a temporary camp near the border in Rakhine to receive the first arrivals.

She said conditions are not conducive for the return of the refugees as there is no access to health as well as no preparations for people to go to their homelands.

The Rohingya immigrants, who fled to India after violence in the Rakhine state of Myanmar, have settled in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.

Bangladesh and Myanmar will maintain a good relationship and work together on this issue, he said.
