Bangladesh has postponed its plan to begin repatriating more than 680,000 Rohingya Muslims back to Myanmar, also known as Burma, amid concerns the process will not be voluntary, a Bangladeshi official confirmed Monday. Bangladesh and Myanmar signed an agreement to return the refugees in “safety, security, and dignity” beginning Tuesday. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya fled into neighboring Bangladesh in August after a deadly security crackdown, which the UN called ethnic cleansing, in Rakhine state.
