Turkey's Anadolu Agency team entered the camp in Bangladesh where Rohingya Muslims who escaped from Arakan region of Myanmar are staying.
Rohingya Muslims, who were living in Arakan region in the west of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), escaped from the violence against them, and now they are trying to survive under difficult conditions in camps alongside Bangladesh border with Myanmar. They are trying to survive with the assistance provided by the United Nations and other aid organizations.
Tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims are left homeless, while nearly 1,000 Muslims are reported missing.
Earlier, Wakar Uddin, Chairman of Arakan Rohingya Union (ARU), spoke to AA, and said "according to the first-hand and confirmed information I got from the region, the number of homeless and people at refugee camps have exceeded 90,000. I cannot give an exact figure for the number of the dead, because everytime a Muslim is killed the body is taken away. Nearly 1,000 are missing, but there are a significant number of dead bodies in this figure."
The government of Myanmar refuses to recognize Rohingya Muslims. The government says the Rohingyas are not native and classify them as illegal migrants, although they have lived in Myanmar for generations.
