The government of Bangladesh ordered mobile-phone operators to end service in the camps housing Rohingya Muslim refugees from Myanmar, and to stop selling mobile access to residents of the camps. The UN said the move would further isolate the 750,000 Rohingyas, who fled a pogrom backed by the Burmese army in 2017.

Kazakhstan’s president, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, promised to ease laws restricting public protests. Police have suppressed sporadic demonstrations against his stage-managed succession to the presidency earlier this year, after the abrupt resignation of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the strongman of 30 years. Mr Tokayev also affirmed Mr Nazarbayev’s daughter Dariga as head of the senate and thus next in line to the presidency.
哈萨克斯坦总统托卡耶夫承诺放宽限制公众抗议的法律。在执政30年的铁腕人物努尔苏丹·纳扎尔巴耶夫(Nursultan Nazarbayev)突然辞职后,警方镇压了今年早些时候反对纳扎尔巴耶夫上台的零星示威活动。托卡耶夫还确认纳扎尔巴耶夫的女儿达丽加(Dariga)为参议院议长,因此她将成为下一任总统。
