Top Myanmar body visiting Rohingya camps

A top commission formed by Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi is visiting Rohingya camps in Bangladesh today to learn of their status first-hand.

The 10-member body, that arrived in Cox’s Bazar yesterday, is scheduled to visit four slums in Ukhia and Teknaf today, our local correspondent reports.

Last reported, they were visiting Pashchim Balukhali Rohingya Camp in Ukhia’s Palangkhali union, a newly-built camp with a population of 12,000 and talking directly with the people there.

Later, they will visit an unregistered camp in Letha, which has 35,000 inhabitants, and a registered camp in Noyapara, with 19,000 inhabitants – both in Teknaf upazila.

The investigation commission arrived in Cox’s Bazar yesterday and took primary information from the deputy commissioner’s office.
