Bangladesh soldiers build Chinese relief tents to house displaced Rohingyas people

Bangladesh soldiers have started to build Chinese relief tents to accommodate the Rohingyas people crossing into the country from Myanmar.

Hundreds of tents have already been built at a new refugee camp in the southeastern Cox's Bazar district, some 292 km away from capital Dhaka.

Chinese relief tents will be able to accommodate tens of thousands of people.

Military personnel are seen on Tuesday to build Chinese tents or extend support to Rohingyas who got allocation of the Chinese relief tents.

China last week sent relief materials for Rohingyas.

A second Chinese cargo plane carrying relief supplies for Rohingya refugees arrived in Bangladesh's southeastern Chittagong region on Thursday after the first one which arrived last Wednesday. The relief materials included about 2,000 tents and 3,000 blankets.

A Cox's Bazar district administration official who preferred to be unnamed said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to visit the Rohingya camps again and distributes personally the Chinese relief blankets which will be crucial for the refugees during the winter months from November to May in the country.

Over half a million Rohingyas have so far fled to Bangladesh since the fresh wave of violence erupted in Myanmar.

Extremist terrorists launched fresh attacks on police outposts in Myanmar's Rakhine state on Aug. 25, displacing residents from a number of areas in Maungtaw district to border areas with Bangladesh.
