'Aung San Suu Kyi is in a difficult position'

'Aung San Suu Kyi is in a difficult position'

Rohingya refugees walk on the muddy path after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Teknaf, Bangladesh, September 3, 2017.

The mob attack on Sunday night in the Magway region of the mainly Buddhist nation was fuelled by anger over the deepening crisis in Rakhine, according to a government press release.

"The current situation can not yet be fully assessed, but the situation seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing", the UN High Commissioner for Human Rigts said.

He noted that the situation could not be fully assessed because Myanmar had refused access to human rights investigators, but said the United Nations had received "multiple reports and satellite imagery of security forces and local militia burning Rohingya villages, and consistent accounts of extrajudicial killings, including shooting fleeing civilians". Over the weekend, Bangladesh's government said that 3,000 Rohingya had been killed in Burma and that the situation was comparable to genocide.

At least 313,000 Rohingya have flooded into Bangladesh since August 25, when Rohingya insurgents attacked police posts, prompting Myanmar's military to retaliate with what it called "clearance operations" to root out the rebels.

Myanmar says its security forces are carrying out clearance operations to defend against ARSA, which the government has declared a terrorist organization.

There was no immediate response from Myanmar's military, but on Saturday authorities said they would set up three relief camps in Rohingya-majority areas.

"We will come to a decision after assessing what are the steps that should be taken to that end".

Mane sorry after Ederson red card clash
The FC panel react to Jurgen Klopp's decision to leave Coutinho out of Liverpool's squad for the match at Man City . Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum said the visitors had not responded well after the red card.

Myanmar authorities said more than a week ago that some 400 Rohingya, mostly insurgents, had died in clashes with troops, but it has offered no update.

China has said it backs Burma's efforts to "safeguard stability" as pressure mounts to end violence which has sent more than 300,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing to Bangladesh.

Only two-thirds of Burma's 52 million people are ethnic Burmese, and nearly all the other groups have rebelled from time to time because they have no autonomy.

In a report, United Nations investigators said the human rights violations constituted crimes against humanity.

Many more of Myanmar's 1.1.m Rohingya population are attempting to join them.

"The global community is saying it is a genocide".

India Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent visit to Myanmar was motivated in part by a desire to deport the 40,000 some Rohingya people that fled to India during the last uptick of Rakhine violence in 2012.
