Seven killed in Rohingya refugee camp attack

Attackers have killed at least seven people in an assault on an Islamic seminary in a Rohingya refugee camp on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border, the Bangladeshi police said.

The killings came amid mounting tensions after Rohingya community leader Mohibullah was shot dead outside his office in the sprawling camps three weeks ago.

Rohingya activists say there is a mounting “climate of fear” in the camps, with some of them forced to go into hiding since Mohibullah’s killing.
