A volunteer medical worker allegedly raped a 16-year-old Burmese refugee in Bangladesh, Burma News International reports.
The unregistered Arakanese Rohingya refugee accused Kabir Ahmed, a field officer of Medecins Sans Frontieres, of raping her in an empty hut at a refugee camp in Ukhiya around noon of March 18. Other refugees rushed to the girl’s aid upon hearing her screams, the report said.
MSF officials on the ground have yet to give a statement on the incident. MSF staff have been providing medical care to Rohingya refugees.
