Emine Erdogan arrived in Dhaka to meet Rohingya Muslims who have fled persecution in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
The visit follows the latest bloodshed in Myanmar’s Rakhine State that resulted in the fresh influx of Rohingyas into Bangladesh.
According to the United Nations, nearly 164,000 Rohingya Muslims entered Bangladesh from Myanmar’s northwestern Rakhine state since the violence began on August 25, when Rohingya insurgents attacked dozens of police posts and an army base. The ensuing clashes and a military counter-offensive have killed at least 400 people.
