India Saddened Over Violence And Terrorist Attack In Myanmar

He urged Bangladesh to seek global support to provide food, medical and humanitarian care for the new arrivals.

The area of Rakhine closest to Bangladesh has been in lockdown since October 2016.

"I left my five other children and my wife in Myanmar".

The current round of violence was triggered on Friday when Rohingya insurgents carried out a series of coordinated attacks against 30 Burma police outposts and an army base.

The new arrivals faced "an urgent need for shelter, as well as food, water and health care", the UN's Office for the Co-ordination of Human Affairs (OCHA) said on Monday.

Expressing the concern over the reports of renewed violence and attacks by terrorists in northern Rakhine State Myanmar, MEA said, "India is seriously concerned by reports of renewed violence and terrorist attacks in northern Rakhine State Myanmar".

Their statement says they absolutely do not accept terrorist attacks and they can not accept terrorist acts in the name of Islam. We went to downtown Maungdaw and studied the situation. "In addition, the deportation of Rohingya Muslims back to Myanmar would also be a violation of Article 7 of the ICCPR in as much as it prohibits states to extradite, deport, expel or otherwise remove a person from their territory, where there are substantial grounds for believing that there is a real risk of irreparable harm". Tens of thousands have fled to Bangladesh in recent months to escape fighting between Rohingya militants and Myanmar's army - with particularly ferocious clashes erupting in the last few days.

"Even being delayed or pushed back for 24 hours could put people into imminent danger", said Matt Smith founder of Asia-based rights group Fortify Rights.

"As of 27 August, an estimated 5,200 people were reported to have crossed the border into Cox's Bazar, since 24 August, following violence in Myanmar", OCHA said on Monday. The Rohingya, however, track their ancestors many generations back in Myanmar.

She said many others were still waiting to enter Bangladesh. "Communities are providing food and water to those confined at the border, and agencies are providing emergency food and health services to new arrivals". One had died of gunshot wounds on Saturday.

Indeed, such an amendment would harmonise and further the commitment made by member states to uphold not only the Asean Human Rights Declaration agreed in 2012, but also other applicable global human rights instruments, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948, Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam 1990, Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees 1951, Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons 1954, as well as the Geneva Conventions 1949, which protect civilians and refugees fleeing state-sponsored violence.

"We appeal the worldwide community to exercise "the Responsibility to Protect" as the Rohingya civilian population plunges into another episode of widespread "crimes against humanity" under the hands of Myanmar Armed Forces", said the body in the statement.

"It appears the army has not changed its behaviour".

Myanmar's government made similar claims that Rohingya were burning their own homes when violence first broke out in October.

"21 militants have been killed in the ongoing battle", Hlaing added.
