Rohingyas must go to Myanmar
For a long time, there is no visible progress to repatriate the Rohingyas, the forcibly displaced people from the northern Rakhine State of Myanmar now staying in the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, to their ancestral home. It's a big burden for the host country Bangladesh to provide shelter, food, medicine and other facilities to over 1.2 million Rohingyas.
It's also clear that the diplomatic efforts in this regard were not smart enough to compel Myanmar to bring back their nationals. Currently, the Myanmar military is conducting operation against the ethnic rebel groups in the Rakhine State forcing several Buddhist people to flee the country. The authorities must be cautious as any further exodus would push Bangladesh into deep trouble.

Islamist insurgencies and role of the US

Is it a new strategy of US President Donald Trump? Obviously, it raises question when Mr Trump expresses his intension to launch operations against the Islamist insurgencies elsewhere in the world, from Syria and Afghanistan to West Africa. What is significant that the US military has escalated a battle against al-Shabab, an extremist group affiliated with al-Qaida, in Somalia.  
Last year, the US air strikes killed 326 people in 47 disclosed attacks only in Somalia. Now the number of death would be increased, if Mr Trump starts new phase of war.
