Geneva. Bangladesh border guards reported more than 11,000 Rohingya refugees crossing into their country from Myanmar on Monday (09/10), the United Nations refugee agency said.
"We're back in a situation of full alert as far as influxes are concerned. It is a big increase to see 11,000," Adrian Edwards, spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), told a news briefing in Geneva on Tuesday.
"UNHCR is working with the Bangladesh authorities on a transit center to prepare for a potential refugee influx in the coming days," he said.
