B’desh ac­cuses Myan­mar of airspace breach

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES GLOBAL -

Cox’s Bazar: Bangladeshi au­thor­i­ties sum­moned Myan­mar’s en­voy to protest what they said were vi­o­la­tions of their airspace, even as the govern­ment promised to build 14,000 new shel­ters to house the hun­dreds of thou­sands of Ro­hingya Mus­lim refugees camp­ing on road­sides.

The for­eign min­istry said Myan­mar drones and heli­copters flew into Bangladeshi airspace on Sun­day, Tues­day and Thurs­day and warned that the “provoca­tive acts” could lead to con­se­quences. Myan­mar’s pres­i­den­tial spokesman Zaw Htay claimed there was no proof of any tres­pass­ing and said, “We don’t know if they re­leased that state­ment for po­lit­i­cal rea­sons.”

Two kids and a woman were killed in a stam­pede for aid near a Bangladesh refugee camp, UN agen­cies said on, amid fights among Ro­hingyas for food and cloth­ing.
