Bangladesh under ‘no obligation’ to take stranded Rohingya: FM

Bangladesh is under “no obligation” to shelter 81 Muslim Rohingya refugees adrift for almost two weeks on the Andaman Sea and being assisted by neighbouring India, Bangladesh foreign minister AK Abdul Momen said.

India’s coastguard found the survivors and eight dead crammed on a fishing boat and was trying to arrange for Bangladesh to take them, Indian officials said on Friday.
