Bangladesh: Three die in clash at refugee camp

from Reuters AlertNet:

At least three people were killed and 50 others were injured in a clash between Muslim refugees from Myanmar and police at a refugee camp in southeastern Bangladesh, officials said on Friday.

"The dead were refugees and their bodies bearing gunshot wounds were retrieved from Kutupalong Refugee Camp early today," said Police Inspector Abdul Mannan.

Police on Thursday said at least 50 people, including 10 policemen, were injured in a clash at the camp 450 km (281 miles) from the capital Dhaka.
The clash erupted after a group of Rohingya refugees attacked a police post at the camp, trying to free one of their community leaders who had been detained for sheltering illegal people.
