Myanmar soldiers sentenced to 10 years for massacre of 10 Rohingya Muslims

Some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled over the border since August to escape a bloody military crackdown that has left a trail of torched villages in its wake as refugees allege murder and rape by Myanmar's armed forces

The apex court was hearing a plea of refugees Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir seeking education and healthcare on the lines of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees, who were given such facilities in Tamil Nadu.The Rohingyas, who fled to India after violence in the Western Rakhine state of Myanmar, are settled in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.

UN Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Ursula Mueller said this in an interview in Yangon after a six day visit to Myanmar.

On November 23, Dhaka and Naypyidaw signed an agreement to begin repatriating the refugees in January this year, but the process has stalled over technical and ground-level problems.

Kalam will accompany Win Myat Aye on the visit to the camps in Kutupalong, where many refugees live in shacks made of bamboo and plastic sheets that are unlikely to withstand heavy rains and storms brought by the monsoon season when it starts in June.

Rights groups have said they are expecting many more refugees from Myanmar to attempt the unsafe sea crossings.

However, the army has repeatedly claimed the Rohingya men were "terrorists", but has not presented any evidence to back up the allegation.

Burma has repeatedly denied the accusations, maintaining that it is carrying out a legitimate campaign against armed terrorists who attacked government forces.

Bangladesh officials have previously expressed doubts about Myanmar's willingness to take back Rohingya refugees.

"We are right now at the border ready to receive, if the Bangladeshis bring them to our side", Kyaw Tin, Myanmar minister of global cooperation, told reporters in January.

Win Myat Aye, Myanmar's minister for social welfare, relief and resettlement, will speak with some of the roughly 700,000 Rohingya Muslims which the United Nations and aid groups say fled a military crackdown in their Buddhist-majority country since August 2017.

The UN has described Myanmar's act of driving almost seven hundred thousand Muslims to Bangladesh as ethnic cleansing.

"I witnessed areas where villages were burned down and bulldozed..."

She said conditions are not conducive for the return of the refugees as there is no access to health as well as no preparations for people to go to their homelands. "We also call worldwide community to ensure "A Protected Return to a Protected Homeland" in Northern Arakan, Myanmar", said a statement issued by ERC following a conference in Frankfurt.
