Indonesian foreign minister Retno Marsudi was due in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, on Tuesday after meeting Nobel peace laureate Suu Kyi and army chief Min Aung Hlaing to urge that Myanmar halt the bloodshed.

In the aftermath of that violence, sporadic attacks against Muslims occurred in other parts of Myanmar, also known as Burma.
