Rohingya militants say ceasefire to end on October 9

Bangladesh health department to launch cholera vaccination for the Rohingya

Rohingya militants attacked Myanmar security forces in late August.

In a statement released on its Twitter account, the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa) said its unilateral truce would end at midnight on Oct 9.

At the request of the government of Bangladesh, IOM is hosting the Inter Sector Coordination Group, which is coordinating the work of aid agencies responding to the humanitarian crisis triggered by the influx. Asked for comments, a government spokesperson said: "We have no policy to negotiate with terrorists".

The poorly-armed Arsa tipped northern Rakhine into crisis when it ambushed police posts on August 25.

Overcrowding the refugee camp for Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh may spread deadly diseases faster, said a top United Nations official.

The Bangladesh government revealed earlier this week about 5,000 Rohingay Muslims are crossing the border daily.

Scores of Rohingya villages have been torched.

The UN has condemned Myanmar's refusal to grant it access to Rakhine state - the scene of the alleged ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims.

The 'Stranger Things' Mobile Game Has You Collecting Eggo Waffles for Bonuses
We all know that free Android games aren't always free these days, but many of them are very close if you have a little patience. In an effort to satiate the hungry masses and further drive the hype, developer BonusXP has released Stranger Things: The Game .

Rohingya refugees and rights groups have accused the army of setting the fires with the help of Buddhist vigilante mobs.

The coast guard of Bangladesh discovered Thursday, the lifeless body of 26 the Rohingya, many of them children, whose boats have capsized as they fled the violence in Burma.

According to the Dhaka Tribune, Jewel followed Rafiza and searched multiple camps for her, finally succeeding and marrying her despite a 2014 law banning locals from marrying Rohingya, as the government feared refugees were marrying to gain Bangladeshi citizenship.

Hasina said that at one stage after the forced exodus of Rohingyas the Myanmar "pretended like they wanted a war".

The UN resident coordinator in capital Dhaka, Robert Watkins, said Bangladesh should look for new sites for the upcoming refugee camps instead of expanding the existing one. And given how vulnerable the Rohingya, who have managed to take refuge in our land, are, ruling out such a possibility might be disastrous.

Bangladesh had then said it would call the worldwide community for a verification process supervised by the UN.

"It is much easier to manage people, manage the health situation and security situation if there are a number of different camps rather than one concentrated camp".
