UN launches aid appeal for Rohingya refugees


Myanmar government has repatriated the first Rohingya family from nearly 700,000 refugees who fled to Bangladesh after violence in the Western Rakhine state of the country.

In a statement, the government said, five members of a Muslim family came to the Taungpyoletwea reception centre in Rakhine yesterday. Myanmar and Bangladesh agreed in January to complete a voluntary repatriation of the refugees in two years.

It is being said, the family members were issued National Verification Cards (NVCs) upon entering Myanmar. NVCs are part of the government’s ongoing effort to register Rohingya that falls short of offering them citizenship.
