UN Security Council delegation visits Rohingya camps
A delegation of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has visited the Rohingya refugees at Bandarban’s Naikhongchhari upazila and Kutupalong camp in Cox's Bazar on Sunday morning. The 24-member UNSC team arrived in Cox’s Bazar on Saturday. Cox’s Bazar Deputy Commissioner Md Kamal Hossain said: “The UNSC delegation team has already visited refugee camps in the border area in Naikhongchhari. They have assessed the situation there and spoke to the Rohingyas. “After visiting the Kutupalong camp, they will brief the media.” [caption id="attachment_261995" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Vehicles carrying UNSC delegation entering Ukhiya Syed Zakir Hossain/Dhaka Tribune[/caption] Thousands of Rohingya refugees in Kutupalong camp thronged to meet the UNSC delegation team. After visiting the Kutupalong camp, the delegation will leave for Dhaka. Later in the evening, a reception will be held in their honour at Radisson Blu Dhaka Water Garden Hotel. They will meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Monday morning and afterwards leave Dhaka for Myanmar. The UNSC visit was originally scheduled for April 27-28. Over 700,000 Rohingyas fled to Bangladesh, and the influx, though reduced in recent weeks, continues despite Myanmar’s assurances of stopping violence in Rakhine.
