First Rohingya family repatriated in Myanmar despite UN concerns

Myanmar has accepted the first five among some 700,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees who had fled military-led violence.

By Siobhan Robbins, South East Asia Correspondent

Myanmar's government has confirmed it has repatriated the first Rohingya family after more than 700,000 fled Bangladesh.

The confirmation comes despite United Nations warnings that it was not yet safe for families to return.

A statement posted on the Facebook page of the Information Committee on Saturday said

"The five members of a family... came back to Taungpyoletwei town repatriation camp in Rakhine state this morning."

Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Rohingya crisis: Myanmar says first refugee family returns

Myanmar says it has repatriated the first family of Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh, despite a UN warning that it is not safe to return.

Some 700,000 Rohingya have fled across the border to escape a brutal military campaign that began last August.

The UN has accused Myanmar of "ethnic cleansing" - a charge it denies.

Myanmar says five members of a family arrived at a "repatriation camp" on Saturday, and were provided with supplies and ID cards.

If confirmed, this would be the first group of Rohingya repatriated to Myanmar since the crisis began.

The Myanmar government says it has been engaged in a justified campaign against Rohingya militants in Rakhine state.
