Hasina seeks return of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar

Bangladesh’s prime minister has accused Myanmar of ethnic cleansing of its Rohingya people and urged the country to allow the return of “hungry, distressed and hopeless” refugees. Sheikh Hasina told the UN General Assembly on Thursday that Bangladesh was sheltering more than 800,000 Rohingya, of whom 430,000 had arrived in the past three weeks.
