State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi told diplomats recently in Nay Pyi Taw that Myanmar will repatriate all refugees who have fled to Bangladesh after the terrorist attack and the military's response in Rakhine State.

More than half a million Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh since the end of August, to escape a campaign of repression of the burmese army after the attacks of rebels rohingyas.

United Nations sources claim that more than half a million Rohingya refugees have already entered Bangladesh's Cox Bazar since the third week of August.

More than 10,000 Rohingya have massed near a crossing point with Bangladesh, Myanmar media said on Tuesday, as an exodus continues to swell with food supplies low and hostility towards them surging.

The army, which has been accused of conducting ethnic cleansing, has said it is only targeting militants.

Inside Rakhine, conditions are deteriorating for those left behind.

United Nations officials who took part in a controlled tour of Rakhine state on Monday spoke of an "unimaginable" scale of suffering.

"We saw villages that had been burned to the ground and emptied of inhabitants".

"The repatriation process can start any time for those who wish to return to Myanmar".

Refugees in Bangladesh are packed into overcrowded camps along the border at increasing risk of disease.

Many refugees are suspicious of the Myanmarese government's plan. Akdağ said that Turkey would build a refugee camp in the country with the capacity to hold 100,000 people.

"Our next immediate priority is to bring back the refugees who have fled to Bangladesh", Win Myat Aye told the Geneva forum. "We need support from around the world because you're talking about a literal humanitarian disaster", Beasley said.

At least 60 people were feared dead, mainly children, after boat capisized agonsingly close to the Bangladeshi shore Thursday carrying Rohingya from the Buthidaung area. To Rohingya refugees, this is just "drama".

But many refugees are wary about returning without an assurance of full citizenship, which they say "could leave them vulnerable to persecution".

About the ongoing influx, Kyaw Tint Swe admitted that he heard a few incidents about threats made by ethnic Rakhine community to Rohingyas to leave the country.

Suu Kyi also said Myanmar was ready to start a verification process under the 1993 agreement with Bangladesh and "refugees from this country will be accepted without any problem".

The clashes between the Buddhist majority and the Rohingya minority have occurred off and on in the past as well.

Armed Police Battalion (APBn) arrested a suspected Rohingya woman while she was trying to fly to Malaysia from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka on Monday nigh, reports out staff correspondent.
