From the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office –
Latest update: Safety & security section (Burmese border and Political violence) – as a result of ongoing violence in Burma (Mynamar) since August 2017, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees have arrived in the south-east of Bangladesh, close to the border with Burma; you should exercise caution and consult with the local authorities about the latest situation before visiting the area; in addition to long-standing political tensions between the government and opposition, the current Rohingya refugee crisis may lead to protests and demonstrations in Dhaka, including in the Gulshan and Baridhara areas of the city; if you see a demonstration developing, or are in a situation in which you feel unsafe, move away to a place of safety.
