Four more dead bodies of Rohingya people were found in border areas of Cox's Bazar and Bandarban as Myanmar continued to target the minority group in a violent 'clearance operation', reports bdnews24.com.

 

 

The bodies were found at the Howaikyang point of the Naf river in Teknaf and near the Ghundum point at Naikhyangchhari early Sunday, according to Border Guard Bangladesh.

 

 

The bodies of at least 54 Rohingya Muslims have been recovered in Bangladesh in the past five days amid the latest wave of refugees fleeing the troubled Rakhine State.

 

 

Clashes and widespread arson are being reported by victims fleeing the Myanmar army's assault that followed terror attacks on police and army posts by Muslim insurgents last week.
