UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet said Wednesday that it remained unsafe for Rohingya refugees to return to their homes in Myanmar, nearly five years after a military crackdown there sparked an exodus to neighbouring Bangladesh.

"Unfortunately the current situation across the border means that the conditions are not right for returns," Bachelet told reporters in Dhaka.
