Bangladesh has eased restrictions on aid groups working in refugee camps and sought $250 million from the World Bank to fund emergency relief, officials said Tuesday, after an influx of more than 435,000 Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar has overwhelmed its border area.Bangladesh has strictly limited access to Rohingya camps in recent years.The aid groups still only have permission to work for two months in the camps around the border town of Cox's Bazar, Hossain said, and must focus on providing healthcare, sanitation facilities and shelters for the Rohingya.The new groups include local and international charities. Authorities briefly ordered MSF, ACF and Muslim Aid to stop providing aid to the Rohingya in 2012 .
