Suu Kyi to skip UNGA amid Rohingya crisis

Janjua stressed that Myanmar should allow Rohingya Muslims to live and move freely without fear and discrimination.

Another NGO you can donate to is the UNHCR, which is urging that there is an urgent need for emergency shelters and core relief items as more refugees arrive in Bangladesh. More airlifts were planned in coming days.

Myanmar's de facto leader, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, has canceled a trip to the United Nations in September amid a spiraling crisis inside the country's Rakhine state.

He called for practical measures by Islamic governments to end the crisis in Myanmar.

The United Nations says 370,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Buddhist-majority Myanmar since the Army launched a huge security operation in response to attacks by militants late last month.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina told a rally during Tuesday's visit to the Kutupalong refugee camp, near the border town of Ukhiya, that she wished for peace for the Rohingya and would not "tolerate injustice" against them.

"We are so anxious and concerned about what's taking place in Myanmar against the most persecuted minority in the world", Executive Director of CAIR, Nihad Awad said.

"What is the crime of the women and children or the innocent people?" she said.

The Bangladeshi leader has lambasted Myanmar for the "atrocities" that have driven hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims into Bangladesh in recent weeks.

The Press TV reported Ayatollah Khamenei strongly criticized the silence and inaction of global bodies and self-proclaimed human rights advocates on those ongoing atrocities. "We are not saying they should send troops there, but impose political and economic pressure", Khamenei said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the administration continues to condemn the violence between Rohingya Muslims and Myanmar security forces.

Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua called U. Win Myint to convey the concerns of its government and people over the ongoing violence against the Rohingya in Myanmar's Rakhine state, said a statement issued by the foreign ministry.

The violence began August 25, when an ethnic Rohingya insurgent group attacked police posts in Myanmar and security forces retaliated.

Reports from refugees and rights groups paint a picture of widespread attacks on Rohingya villages in the north of Rakhine by the security forces and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists, who have put numerous Muslim villages to the torch.
