Police free detained foreign aid workers in Cox’s Bazar
Police have freed all the foreign aid workers who had been detained near the city of Cox's Bazar after failing to show their passports, visas or work permits, a senior police official said on Saturday, reports Reuters. The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Friday had detained 11 aid workers of different non-government organizations (NGOs) and handed them over to Ukhiya police. Ukhiya police station OC Mohammad Abul Khair said two of the aid workers were from the United Kingdom, two  from Italy, and one each from Turkey, the Netherlands, Norway, Belgium, Brazil, Korea and Kenya. “All of them were going to a refugee camp from Cox’s Bazar by their own vehicles, but they could not produce their passport, visa or work permit,” Khair told Reuters. “All of them were freed later after their written undertaking that in future they will not visit any camp or will not come out without a valid passport or visa,” Khair added. Nearly 700,000 Rohingyas have fled Myanmar's Rakhine State and crossed into Bangladesh since August, when attacks on security posts by insurgents triggered a military crackdown that the United Nations has said amounts to ethnic cleansing.
