They’re in a tight crowd. There is no social distancing and nobody’s wearing mask.
The Rohingya men below were photographed a few days ago on Thursday (Sept 30).
They were attending the funeral of Mohib Ullah or Mohibullah (pictured below, wearing white) in the Kutupalong camp located in Cox’s Bazar.
Mohibullah, a father of eight, had been gunned down in his office on Wednesday.
Habibullah, a brother of the deceased, said he witnessed the shooting. According to him, group of eight to 10 people entered the office and three of them surrounded Mohibullah.
“One pointed the gun between his eyes, the other on his chest and another one here on the arm and they all fired,”Habibullah was quoted as saying by Al Jazeera in a report yesterday.
Habibullah accused the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa) of carrying out the killing.
Mohibullah was an internationally prominent Rohingya rights activist and viewed as a moderate. He often received death threats from the hardliners.
There is mounting violence in the Rohingya settlements as armed gangs operating drug cartels vie for power.
