Rohingya refugee children suffer dire humanitarian conditions, UNICEF warns

In a report, the agency said the essential needs of many children are not being met.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said Friday that almost 7,000 Rohingya refugees from Myanmar have been admitted to Bangladesh after spending as much as four days stranded near the border. Ingram also warned of threats posed by human traffickers and others who might exploit children in the refugee areas.

The UNICEF children's agency said Friday that more than 320,000 Rohingya refugee children are threatened by desperate living conditions and waterborne diseases.

Safe drinking water and toilets are in "desperately short supply" in the chaotic, teeming camps and settlements, Ingram said after spending two weeks in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

The report comes ahead of a donor conference Monday in Geneva to drum up global funding for the Rohingya. "In a sense, it's no surprise that they must truly see this place as a hell on earth", Ingram told a news conference in Geneva. It calls for $434 million to help 1.2 million people through February 2018.

United Nations agencies are still demanding access to northern Rakhine, where an unknown number of Rohingya remain despite United Nations reports that many villages and food stocks have been burned. "We just must keep putting it on the record, we can not keep silent".

Shoigu will be joining next week's meeting of 10 Southeast Asian defense ministers with counterparts from other countries, including the US, Russia and China.

The influx of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar began on August 25 as the military launched a crackdown it said was in response to militant attacks.

UNICEF says the children who make up most of the almost 600,000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled violence in Myanmar are seeing a "hell on earth" in overcrowded, muddy and squalid refugee camps in neighboring Bangladesh. Refugees have fled burning villages and provided accounts — like the children's drawings — of security forces gunning down civilians.

Buddhist-majority Myanmar has denied citizenship for the Rohingya since 1982 and excludes them from the 135 ethnic groups officially recognized, which effectively renders them stateless.
