United Nations human rights boss Michelle Bachelet called on Bangladesh on Tuesday to halt plans to repatriate 2,200 Rohingya refugees to Myanmar, warning that their lives would be at "serious risk".

In a statement, she said that the U.N. human rights office continued to receive reports of ongoing violations committed against Muslim Rohingya in northern Rakhine, Myanmar - including alleged killings, disappearances and arbitrary arrests.
