Bangladesh says the repatriation of thousands of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar will be delayed amid the huge task of preparing Transit Centres and approving Lists of Returnees. Bangladesh's Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner has not given a revised starting date for the repatriation of some 750,000 refugees who fled unrest and a military crackdown in the Rakhine state in Myanmar.The entire repatriation process is expected to take two years.
