Britain says suspends training of Myanmar military following violence

Rohingya Muslim refugees protect themselves from rain in Balukhali refugee camp in Bangladesh

Rohingya Muslim refugees protect themselves from rain in Balukhali refugee camp in Bangladesh

As of Monday, more than 410,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh after the Myanmar security forces launched "security operations" targeting Rohingya villages following insurgent attacks on police posts and an army base on August 25, according to United Nations estimates.

Suu Kyi said her government would act on the recommendations "within the shortest time possible".

Suu Kyi stressed that the government does not know the root causes of the crisis.

Most of the several hundred thousand Rohingya who have fled to Bangladesh before this latest wave still aren't registered.

In an address timed to pre-empt likely censure at the UN General Assembly in NY, she said Myanmar stood ready "at any time" to repatriate refugees in accordance with a "verification" process agreed with Bangladesh in the early 1990s.

Kofi Annan also said in a statement that there was risk of another cycle of violence and radicalisation which would further deepen the chronic poverty in Rakhine State unless concerted action was taken soon by the government, aided by all its sectors and the society.

Suu Kyi, who decided not to attend the UN General Assembly in NY later this week, said she was "aware of the fact that the world's attention is focused on the situation in Rakhine" and that Myanmar "does not fear global scrutiny", CNN reported. If Rohingya are proven wrong that they were attacked, he said, "we will not mind if the world decides to kill us all by pushing us into the sea".

The careful language of the now-fallen human rights star illustrates her dilemma: face worldwide condemnation or risk rattling an army which has used national security as a pretext for coups.

The claims emerged during a petition hearing at India's supreme court filed on behalf of two Rohingya refugees challenging a government decision to deport the ethnic group from India. "Many people would have lost their documents in the fires, and many children were already unregistered", she said.

Human rights activists, fellow Nobel laureates and much of the world's Muslim community have condemned Suu Kyi for failing to use her position as a government leader and moral authority to speak out on behalf of Rohingyas.

Washington is No. 7 and three Big Ten teams round out the top 10: Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio State . The Gators jumped over South Florida , who is ranked No. 21, one spot better than a week ago.

Suu Kyi has been strongly criticize by the worldwide community for failing to speak up publicly for the stateless Rohingya or to urge restraint on the military.

She said she it would be helpful to understand why conflict did not break out everywhere.

Ms Suu Kyi did not mention the Rohingya by name in yesterday's speech, but did address their potential return.

According to Penny Green, a professor of law at Queen Mary University of London, Suu Kyi chose to use the word in relation to a terrorist group, that means that is the only identity that Rohingya will be attached to, from her perspective and she hopes from the worldwide perspective.

Suu Kyi also promised to provide humanitarian assistance to the communities affected by the violence.

According to the report, movement restrictions have a wide range of detrimental effects, including reduced access to education, health and services, strengthened communal segregation, and reduced economic interaction. Now Hafiz calls Suu Kyi a "liar" and says Rohingya are suffering more than ever.

New maps of the damage show near-total destruction of the 214 villages seen in satellite imagery analyzed by HRW, with more than 90 percent of the structures in each village damaged.

The Rohingya refugees have fled since the ongoing violence broke out on August 25 when Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) rebels attacked police checkposts and killed 12 security personnel.

Armed non-Muslim groups were encouraged to attack their Muslim neighbors, refugees told CNN.
