Myanmar drones, choppers violate Bangladesh airspace again
The Foreign Ministry on Friday lodged another strong protest with the Dhaka-based embassy of Myanmar after the latter’s military drones and helicopters violated Bangladesh’s airspace again in Cox’s Bazar border areas several times in the past week. About 400,000 Rohingya people, fleeing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, have taken shelter in a vast area of Cox’s Bazar’s Teknaf and Ukhiya.
