The UN refugee agency says Myanmar and Bangladesh are making a second attempt to start repatriating Rohingya Muslims after more than 700,000 of them fled a security crackdown in Myanmar almost two years ago.
Aerial images from Shwegyin township in Bago region showed how the area had become a vast lake of water.
The event came days after Bangladesh with the help of the UN refugee agency attempted to start the repatriation of 3,450 Rohingya Muslims but none agreed to go back voluntarily.
Shah's father Mohammad Selim said his son was a miracle child. "Allah saved my kid that night. All praise to Him," said Selim, an imam at a mosque at Balukhali refugee camp.
Members of about 200 Rohingya Muslim families interviewed on Wednesday by officials from the UN refugee agency and the Bangladesh government all said they do not want to return to Myanmar unless their citizenship and safety are ensured, an official said.
Now Foxtrot has his own Instagram account -- called "humanitarian_pup" -- with regular updates on his activities around the camps.
Gemma Snowdon, a WFP communications officer, said that after posting photos of Foxtrot on her personal social media pages, she had a brainwave that the canine could be put to good use.
It is not surprising that none of the thousands of Rohingya Muslims living in crowded refugee camps in Bangladesh turned up for a planned repatriation to Myanmar on Thursday. The horrific actions of violence and ethnic cleansing by Myanmar military have left the Rohingya Muslims horror-struck.
The decision by Bangladesh and Myanmar to consider a fresh attempt soon to repatriate a few of the thousands of Rohingya refugees who fled a military crackdown two years ago is a step in the right direction.
