Rohingya children refugees face hell on earth in Bangladesh camps: UNICEF

 

 

The United Nations children’s agency has warned of the dire conditions of Myanmarese refugee children in overcrowded and squalid refugee camps in Bangladesh.

UNICEF said in a report that children, who make up 58 percent of the nearly 600,000 Rohingya Muslims who have been forced to flee violence and persecution in Myanmar into Bangladesh, are trapped in a “hell on earth,” media reported on Friday.

The UN agency report documented the plight of the children who have sought refuge at Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh over the last eight weeks.

Report author Simon Ingram said about one in five children in the area are “acutely malnourished.”
