Myanmar police kill 8 protesters in Rakhine State

Myanmar police kill 8 protesters in Rakhine State

Our team of physicians recently conducted forensic evaluations of Rohingya survivors in Bangladesh and we found that many women and children had sustained gunshots, stab wounds, burns, and other intentional injuries - including, reportedly, mass rape - that are inconsistent with any legitimate "anti-terror" operations.

Under the November agreement, Rohingya will need to provide evidence of their residency in Myanmar in order to return-something many say they do not have.

There is a "grave risk" in plans for repatriation for Rohingya refugees to Myanmar without the understanding of their legal status, destination and willingness to return, a parliament committee report said.

"The agreement stigmatizes the Rohingya people as would-be terrorists and includes unrealistic demands that these people, who fled for their lives with no possessions, show proof of residency to the very government that denied them of their citizenship, making it hard for them to believe that they will be protected upon returning home".

"The worst would be to move these people from camps in Bangladesh to camps in Myanmar, keeping an artificial situation for a long time and not allowing for them to regain their normal lives", said Guterres, who was previously the head of UNHCR for 10 years.

"Our involvement in the process and our full access to areas of return in Myanmar can help to build confidence for all concerned, including the refugees", said Vivian Tan, UNHCR's senior regional communication officer.

Ferrero snaps up Nestlé's confectionery business for $2.8bn
The sale will make Ferrero the third biggest confectioner in the U.S. and leave the Swiss brand free to focus on other areas. It follows Ferrero's purchase of Ferrara Candy, maker of Lemonheads and RedHots, from the L Catterton private equity group.

The United Nations estimates that more than 650,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh since August of past year to avoid violence and the military crackdown in Rakhine.

Buddhists are the majority in the western state of Rakhine, which is also home to minority Rohingya Muslims.

The rape of Rohingya women by Myanmar's security forces was widespread, according to interviews with women conducted at displacement camps by United Nations medics and activists.

"No terrorist outfit is allowed to operate from Bangladesh and jeopardise the security interest of our neighbours, including India", Ali said while addressing the Raisina Dialogue.

State-run media in Burma reported on Monday the 124-acre Hla Po Khaung camp will accommodate about 30,000 people in 625 buildings and that at least 100 buildings are to be completed by the end of the month.

"Where are considerations for protection of the Rohingya from Myanmar security forces who months ago were raping and killing them?"
