Euro MPs condemn violence against Rohingya in Myanmar

Myanmar: Trawler carrying Rohingya Muslims sinks near Bangladesh, 2 children dead

So far, more than 3,00,000 Rohingya Muslims have reportedly fled to Bangladesh while another 40,000 have taken shelter in India.

Aid agencies are still blocked from accessing all of Rakhine state due to what the Myanmar military says are security concerns.

The UN Security Council on Wednesday condemned the violence in Rakhine State that sparked the mass exodus of Rohingya.

I am appalled by the allegations of gross human rights violations against large numbers of Rohingya, including reports of the Burmese military and local militia forcing hundreds of thousands of men, women and children from their homes and villages being burnt.

But since winning the general election in 2015, many have criticized Aung San Suu Kyi for doing little to quiet the ethnic rivalries within Myanmar. It was not clear what was burning or who set the fires.

Elsewhere along Myanmar's borders, where ethnic rebel groups and government troops have been fighting, civilians from other ethnic and religious minorities have also been forced to flee for safety over the last few monhts.

Prime Minister Hasina also said she will raise the Rohingya issue at the UN General Assembly now under way in NY.

Ali said Bangladesh's efforts to mount worldwide pressure on Myanmar to ensure deportation of all the Rohingya refugees after stopping the "ethnic cleansing" will also continue.

The mission said Quader likened the aid to India's assistance to Bangladesh during the 1971 Liberation War.

But the position effectively makes her Myanmar's de facto leader.

Expressing concern over the situation, Stephane Dujarric, spokesperson to the United Nations secretary-general said: "The reports we're getting, the pictures all of us are seeing are heart-breaking to say the least".

The exodus of refugees, sparked by the security forces' fierce response to a series of Rohingya militant attacks, is the biggest problem Suu Kyi has faced since taking charge a year ago.

Critics have called for her to be stripped of her Nobel Prize for failing to do more to halt the strife, although national security remains firmly in the hands of the military.

"The situation remains, or seems, a textbook example of ethnic cleansing", U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said.

The current crisis erupted on August 25, when an insurgent Rohingya group attacked police outposts in Burma's Rakhine state, killing a dozen security personnel.
