Unicef seeks international support for ensuring protection of Rohingya children’s rights

Unicef has called for international support to the efforts being led by Bangladesh government to deliver urgent humanitarian aid and ensure the protection of children’s rights.

The United Nations International Children's Fund (Unicef) came up with the statement after a trawler carrying Rohingyas capsized in the Bay of Bengal in Cox’s Bazar yesterday.

Till now, 19 Rohingyas, mostly children, died in the trawler capsize incident that took place in Ukhia upazila.

“Dozens of others are believed to have perished making similar journeys since the latest crisis in Rakhine state erupted in late August. All told, over a quarter of a million children from Myanmar have now taken refuge in southern Bangladesh in recent weeks,” the Unicef said in the statement.
