Shihab Kaiser Khan, a senior officer of the Armed Police Battalion (APBN), told reporters that the bodies of seven Rohingya refugees have been recovered after Friday morning’s clashes, Xinhua news agency reported.

He said a Rohingya refugee with weapons has already been detained in this connection. He said that raids were being conducted in the refugee camp to arrest the perpetrators responsible for the incident. He could not immediately confirm the cause of the clash.

Mohib Ullah, president of the Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights (ARSPH), was shot dead by unidentified gunmen on September 29 at the Kutupalong Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar. The displaced Rohingya live in overcrowded conditions in Cox’s Bazar, about 300 kilometers southeast of the capital, Dhaka.
