146 Rohingyas pushed back by BGB
Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) have pushed back 146 Rohingyas as they tried to enter Bangladesh through the Naf River in Cox's Bazar's Teknaf upazila. The border guards intercepted and sent back the refugees through different points of the border river in the early hours on Friday, said Major Saiful Islam Jamaddar, deputy commander of Teknaf BGB battalion-2. The 146 Rohingya Muslims included women and children, he added. The BGB official also noted that they had tried to illegally enter Bangladesh following news that the Myanmar army exchanged fire with some insurgents in Rakhine State Thursday night. On August 12, authorities in Myanmar said hundreds of troops had moved into Rakhine State as it ramps up counterinsurgency efforts there, according to AFP. Rohingya leaders in Bangladesh told AFP that at least 3,500 Rohingya refugees had crossed into Bangladesh since then.
