The incident occurred at the massive Kutupalong camp in the southeastern border district of Cox's Bazar, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have taken refuge after fleeing what United Nations officials have called ethnic cleansing in Myanmar's Rakhine state.
The UN's High Commissioner for Human Rights has accused the military of carrying out an ethnic cleansing of the area.
Myanmar's government is bulldozing Rohingya villages and destroying precious evidence, according to a rights groups.
Activists say "bulldozing these areas threatens to erase both the memory and the legal claims of the Rohingya who lived there".
In a report* marking six months since the start of the latest exodus of Rohingya refugees into southern Bangladesh, UNICEF says that floods caused by the forthcoming cyclone season are likely to engulf the fragile and insanitary camps where the most of the refugees are living, raising the likelihood of waterborne disease outbreaks and forcing clinics, learning centres and other facilities for children to close.
"Government and allied forces, including Russian Federation, carried out indiscriminate attacks and direct attacks on civilians and civilian objects using aerial and artillery bombing, including with chemical and other internationally banned weapons, killing and injuring hundreds", Amnesty's report says.
While Myanmar's government claims it's simply trying to rebuild a devastated region, the operation has raised deep concern among human rights advocates, who say the government is destroying what amounts to scores of crime scenes before any credible investigation takes place.
In the crowded and largely lawless world of the Rohingya refugee camps of Bangladesh, children face a daily threat of violence, UNICEF said today.
Between January 9 and February 13, bulldozers razed two settlements in the village of Myin Hlut that appeared intact in images from November 2017, the non-profit said.
Bangladesh and Myanmar signed an agreement in November previous year to repatriate all Rohingya Muslims who have crossed the border since August to escape a brutal military crackdown. Myanmar bars independent media access to the state. Meanwhile in Bangladesh, they calculated that there were at least 534,000 refugee children.
"We expected 3.5 million in 2017 but we only received 3.44 million due to natural disasters and H1N1", said Myint Htwe, adding that the impact of the conflict in the northern part of Rakhine state was limited because it's a not a major tourist destination.
"The UN agencies have to plan projects and will coordinate with the government for implementing their plans", Win Myat Aye told Reuters on Friday. The Rohingya people continue to lack basic rights including citizenship.
"More than 40 percent of people in Rakhine live in poverty and we have to reach them with development assistance in order to set the state on the path to peace and inclusive growth", he said. The Rohingya believe the government is intentionally eviscerating the remnants of their culture to make it almost impossible for them to return.
The refugees want to return, Grandi said, so long as their protection and freedom of movement are assured.
