Reuters reveals Bangladesh protests over Myanmar's suspected landmine use near border

Reuters reported exclusively that Bangladesh lodged a protest after it said Myanmar had laid landmines near the border between the two countries, amid growing tensions over the huge influx of Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar. An army crackdown triggered by an attack on Aug. 25 by Rohingya insurgents on Myanmar security forces has led to the killing of at least 400 people and the exodus of nearly 125,000 Rohingya to Bangladesh, leading to a major humanitarian crisis.
