Rohingya Repatriation Plan Scrapped

Plans to voluntarily repatriate Rohingya refugees to Burma have stalled after no one wanted to go. Burma and Bangladesh are trading blame for delays to the plan they agreed to in October.
 
2,000+ Rohingya were due to return Thursday, and Burma said it was ready to accept them. But the plan faced opposition from refugees, the UN and aid groups who fear for Rohingyas’ safety in Burma. Bangladesh has promised not to force anyone to return.
 
Bangladesh's Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner Mohammad Abul Kalam called for international pressure on Burma to accept “some logical and acceptable demands” for repatriations to go ahead.
