The Bangladeshi foreign minister said earlier that Myanmar agreed on Monday to set up a "working group" to plan the repatriation of more than half a million Rohingya Muslim refugees who have fled to Bangladesh to escape an army crackdown.

Suu Kyi has no power over security policy under a military-drafted constitution and the public in Myanmar - where Buddhist nationalism has surged over recent years - largely supports the offensive.

Myanmar blames the rebels for attacks on civilians and for setting most of the fires that have reduced Rohingya villages to ashes.
