Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on 12 September visited Rohingya refugee camp along with a delegation in Kutupalong.

Prime Minister Hasina arrived at Cox's Bazar with the Disaster Management and Relief Minister, Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury, the Minister of Housing and Public Works, Engr Mosharraf Hossain, the State Minister for Land, Saifuzzaman Chowdhury, and various others, the Dhaka Tribune reported.

Prime Minister Hasina visited the camp to inspect the living conditions and distribute aid among the refugees.

Earlier, the United Nations refugee agency, the UNHCR, had said that at least 2,70,000 Rohingya refugees have fled from the violence-affected Myanmar's Northern Rakhine state and sought refuge in Bangladesh where the limited shelter capacity is already exhausted.
