Fear grips Bangladesh camp as 2 Rohingya refugees killed

Fear grips Bangladesh camp as 2 Rohingya refugees killedBangladesh police said they had shot dead two Rohingya refugees during a gunfight in a refugee camp on Saturday after the pair were accused of killing a ruling party official.

The incident comes two days after a second failed attempt to repatriate the refugees, which saw not a single Rohingya turn up to return across the border to conflict-scarred Rakhine state.
