HEADLINE: Burma sends back repatriated Moslem
DATELINE: COX'S BAZAR, Bangladesh, Sept 28
   Burma on Wednesday sent back 70 Burmese Moslem
refugees, two days after they
were repatriated from Bangladesh, government
officials said.  

   Representatives of the U.N. High Commissioner
for Refugees (UNHCR) said the
Burmese action would hamper repatriation of
thousands of the refugees who fled
to Bangladesh in early 1992 to escape alleged
military persecution in west
Burma's Moslem-dominated Arakan state.

   Rangoon authorities told UNHCR officials, who
visited Burma's Maungdaw
township on Wednesday, the refugees had been sent
back because their papers were
not in order.

   More than 76,000 refugees have returned home
since September 1992. There are
still about 175,000 refugees living in 18 camps in
Bangladesh's southeastern
Cox's Bazar district, bordering Burma, officials
