Rohingya still fleeing from Myanmar to Bangladesh: UNHCR


DHAKA: Rohingya refugees continue to flee Myanmar for Bangladesh even though both countries set up a timetable last month to allow them to start to return home, the U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR) said on Thursday. The number of refugees appears to have slowed. 625,000 have arrived since Aug. 25. 30,000 came last month and around 1,500 arrived last week, UNHCR said"The refugee emergency in Bangladesh is the fastest-growing refugee crisis in the world,"said deputy high commissioner Kelly Clements."Conditions in Myanmar's Rakhaine state are not in place to enable a safe and sustainable return refugees are still fleeing,"she said.
