Rohingya Civil-Rights Leader Mohib Ullah Killed in Bangladesh

Human-rights advocates call for investigation after he was shot dead in refugee camp 

A leader of the Rohingya Muslim community was shot and killed by unidentified gunmen in a refugee camp in Bangladesh, prompting calls from rights advocates for an investigation.

Mohib Ullah, who his colleagues say was 48 years old, was among the most high-profile advocates for the Rohingya, a stateless minority from Myanmar that was targeted in a 2017 military offensive that forced more than 740,000 to flee to neighboring Bangladesh. United Nations investigators have called for Myanmar army leaders to face genocide charges over the attacks.

Members of the organization led by Mr. Mohib Ullah said he was shot around 8:30 p.m. local time on Wednesday and declared dead at a hospital. They said two men arrived at Mr. Mohib Ullah’s office, where he had gone with several friends after evening prayers, and at least one opened fire. They didn’t know who the assailants were or the reason for the attack.

Doctors Without Borders confirmed that Mr. Mohib Ullah was taken to a hospital the group operates and said he was dead when he arrived. Authorities in Bangladesh couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Mr. Mohib Ullah served as chairman of the Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights, a civil-society organization that often represented the Rohingya internationally. In 2019, he was invited to Geneva to address the U.N. Human Rights Council and later to the White House, where he spoke with President Donald Trump as part of a meeting with survivors of religious persecution.
