Some 273 more refugees from 53 families were transferred to the Kutupalong transit camp in Ukhiya, Cox's Bazar yesterday, on the second day of relocating the stranded Rohingyas who fled into Bangladesh territory from a zero-line refugee camp amid violence.

With this, a total of 457 Rohingyas from 88 families were relocated from Tambru to the transit camp in two days, confirmed Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner (RRRC) Mohammad Mizanur Rahman.

They are among the nearly 3,000 people who fled the gunfights between two Myanmar armed groups near the Tambru border of Bandarban's Naikhongchhari upazila.
