15 dead, 400 missing in Rohingya camp blaze in Bangladesh: UN

Mar 23, 2021 18:14 IST | By Editorji News Desk

At least 15 people have been killed and 400 are still missing in the massive fire at the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh, the United Nations refugee agency said.

The fire broke out in the late afternoon and spread quickly through at least four blocks destroying hundreds of shelters and displacing thousands, said Mohammad Shamsud Douza, additional commissioner of the government's Refugee, Relief and Repatriation Commission.

He further said that at least four units of firefighters were struggling to control the blaze due to its rapid spread.

Bangladesh has sheltered more than a million Rohingya Muslims, who fled Myanmar in 2017 in a major crackdown by Myanmar's military.
