UN urges Bangladesh to make available more land for Rohingya Muslims camps

The U.N. refugee agency says the number of Rohingya refugees who have fled Myanmar since Aug. 25 is now estimated at roughly 290,000.

UNHCR spokeswoman Vivian Tan said the number of people arriving continues to grow.

The U.N. has asked Bangladesh authorities to make more land available so they can build new relief camps.
