21 dead after Rohingya boats capsized in Naf

Successive governments in the predominantly Buddhist country have denied the Rohingya basic rights and citizenship, deeming a lot of them to be foreign invaders from Bangladesh, even though Rohingya have lived in Myanmar, also known as Burma, for generations.

Erdogan expressed concern over the prevailing situation in the Rakhine State of Myanmar and "ongoing repression and enforcement of excessive power" on Rohingya community.

The foreign ministry said while Bangladesh has been cooperating with Myanmar in the security sector, such instances of "violation of sovereignty may affect the existing understanding and cooperation between the two countries".

Officer-in-charge of Teknaf police station M Mainuddin Khan said 15 of the bodies were floating inside Bangladesh territory of the Naf river.
