They had talked with the refugees introducing themselves as 'journalists'

Three foreigners were detained on Friday from the Kutupalong Rohingya refugee camp near Cox’s Bazar, for unauthorised entrance into the restricted zone.

Two of the arrestees were from New Zealand and one from Singapore.

According to an eyewitness account, the individuals entered the camp around 12pm without prior authorisation from local administration.

They had cameras and laptops with them and talked with the refugees introducing themselves as “journalists.”

Acting on a tip-off, police arrested the three and brought them to Ukhiya police station. However, the officer in charge of the station, Gias Uddin Mia, said they were not arrested but “taken into custody.”

He also said the foreigners admitted they were conducting a research on the Rohingya people. Whether or not they were journalists could not be confirmed, he added.
