Three dead in fire at camp


A FIRE has destroyed more than 20 shops in a makeshift market near a Rohingya refugee camp in southern Bangladesh, killing at least three people.

Police said they recovered the bodies from the debris after it took firefighte­rs several hours to bring the blaze under control.

The fire broke out yesterday when residents of the sprawling Kutupalong camp were asleep.
