The British government has announced “shocking” cuts to its aid in support of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, reports Dhaka Tribune.

“Even in a climate where aid cuts were expected due to the government’s broken promise of delivering 0.7% of GNI in aid, this is still shocking,” said Karin Valtersson, campaigns officer at Burma Campaign UK.

“The Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are genocide survivors, they are some of the most vulnerable people on the planet, many are survivors of sexual violence, of torture, of having witnessed family members including children being killed by the Burmese army,” she said.
