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

Fleeing for their lives

"The Rohingya have faced decades of persecution and targeted violence in Myanmar, but the recent attacks that began just over a month ago are of an entirely new scale and level of inhumanity", Refugees International President Eric Schwartz.

Mark Lowcock, UN under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs, while appealing for access to the population in northern Rakhine, said the situation was "unacceptable" and the flow out of Myanmar has not stopped yet.

Bloody riots in 2012 forced over 100,000 Rohingya to flee to refugee camps in southeast Bangladesh, where many still live.

Cox's Bazar's Civil Surgeon Sheikh Abdus Salam, meanwhile, said though the country earlier almost eradicated several risky diseases, those could return with the Rohingya influx from Myanmar's Rakhine state.

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

"We planned to administer them with 900,000 doses of oral cholera vaccines", Ukhiya upazila's Health and Family Planning Officer and Vaccination Programme's Coordinator Dr Mizbah Uddin Ahmed told BSS.

Myanmar has closed most access to the area, but a couple of agencies have offices open there and the International Committee of the Red Cross is helping the Myanmar Red Cross to deliver aid.

Mr. Lowcock said he believed a "a high-level" United Nations team would be able to visit the area "in the next few days".

Thousands of Islamist hardliners marched in Bangladesh's port city of Chittagong Friday calling for the government to arm Rohingya Muslim refugees fleeing a crackdown in Myanmar's troubled Rakhine state.

The OIC had made a stand that the refugees should be allowed to return safely to Myanmar and that Naypyidaw should take concrete measures to handle the deadly conflict which had occurred mainly in the Rakhine province which borders Bangladesh.

Earlier on October 2, during a talk with Bangladesh foreign minister AH Mahmood Ali, Myanmar asserted it will take back hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who crossed the border to enter the neighboring country.

With New Delhi lending an ear to Bangladeshi concerns, Foreign Secretary Haque now says India and Bangladesh are on the same page even as he praised India's stance including at the UNHRC.

Myanmar's military have blamed the unrest on the Rohingya.

No formal action was taken by the Security Council during their September meeting, but United States ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned the time for words had passed.
