With this assistance, Japan has contributed $156 million to humanitarian assistance in Cox's Bazar since August 2017.

On March 22, at least 15 people were killed in a massive fire that swept through Balukhali Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, the UN refugee agency UNHCR said.

Tens of thousands were left homeless in Cox's Bazar after fleeing the blaze.
