The incident is a sad reminder of contd sufferings of Rohingya Muslims. Int’l community must work together to mitigate the Rohingya crisis.”

FO Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri urged the international community to work together to mitigate Rohingya crisis and destruction.

Furthermore, according to the report by the United Nations (UN), the huge blaze has destroyed many refugee camps, which spread so rapidly through at least four blocks.

The UN Refugee Agency´s representative in Bangladesh told, “What we have seen in this fire is something we have never seen before in these camps. It is massive. It is devastating.”

However, the cause of the fire is still unknown but fatalities were feared.

The centred refugee camp of the blaze nearly shelters one million people from the persecuted Rohingya Muslim minority.

On the other hand, the UN´s International Organization for Migration said it has vowed $1 million to relief efforts but a further $20 million would be required to fulfill all the basic needs.
