About 250 Bangladesh Supreme Court lawyers held a rally and human chain in Dhaka to protest against the ongoing persecution of Rohingya Muslims in neighboring Myanmar.
During the demonstration on Nov. 23 at the Supreme Court, the lawyers lambasted Aung Saan Suu Kyi's government for failing to stop the violence in in Myanmar's Rakhine State while also criticizing Bangladesh for refusing to shelter fleeing refugees.
In recent weeks, hundreds of Rohingyas have tried to enter Bangladesh after the Myanmar military launched a crackdown on alleged Islamist insurgents in the bordering area.
