Indian Supreme Court to Hear Rohingya Deportation Case

21 dead after Rohingya boats capsized in Naf

"They mercilessly slaughtered men, women and children", she told AFP by telephone from Cox s Bazar in Bangladesh where she has fled.

Four of the deceased might have been shot to death, said the OC quoting witnesses.

Meanwhile, authorities in neighboring Bangladesh reported three refugee boats that turned and sank into the Naf River on a trip from Myanmar to Bangladesh. The bodies of nine more children and eight women lie alongside.

The Rohingya immigrants, who fled to India after violence in the Western Rakhine state of Myanmar, have settled in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.

Sixteen bodies washed ashore on the Bangladeshi side of a river yesterday, a border official said, lifting the grim toll over the last two days from apparent boat capsizes to 39. That set off a surge of anti-Muslim sentiment throughout the country.

"The anti-Muslim violence of 2012, and the emergence of the new insurgent group previous year were both clear signals that the volatile dynamics of Rakhine state urgently need a political, not just a security, response to address the concerns of all communities in the state".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has appreciated Bangladesh's steps for providing assistance to Rohingya people and resolving the ongoing Rohingya crisis as he phoned his Bangladesh counterpart, President Abdul Hamid.

Rights groups allege a massacre of Rohingya occurred on Sunday afternoon in the village of Chut Pyin in Rathedaung township, led by Myanmar security forces and ethnic Rakhine Buddhist mobs.

Hundreds of people have been stranded in a no man's land at the countries' border, the International Organization for Migration said.

This new chapter of state-sanctioned genocide began when an armed group, which calls itself the ARSA (Armed Rohingya Salvation Army), reportedly attacked a number of Burmese military outposts last week to avenge decades of army violence and murder. New Delhi also made it clear that its security forces carried out operations in 2015 "along the border" with Myanmar thereby seeking to avoid any controversy in the wake of reports at the time that the surgical strike by the Indian Army had been carried out against terrorists in Myanmar that year. The country already hosts 400,000 Rohingya and does not want more.

Thousands of Rohingyas have sought to flee the fighting to Bangladesh, with almost 30,000 crossing over.

New recruits are being trained and armed in the hillsides across the border in Myanmar's Rakhine State, Omar said, where a week of bloody conflict has left at least 110 confirmed dead and driven almost 20,000 civilians into Bangladesh. The Muslims, however, claim roots in the region that go back centuries.

Media access to Rakhine is restricted, but on Wednesday an AFP reporter on a government-led visit to the worst-hit section of the state saw plumes of smoke billowing from several burning villages.
