Suu Kyi tells Republican senator she seeks aid for Rohingya

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau Wednesday urged Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi to end the violence which has seen almost 380,000 Rohingya Muslims flee to neighboring Bangladesh. It's been characterized by many as ethnic cleansing.

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday said that violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar must stop.

"I think nobody wants to see a return to military rule in (Myanmar), nobody wants to see a return of the generals", he said, adding that Nobel Peace Prize laureate Suu Kyi should use her moral capital to highlight the plight of the Rohingya. China and India might have commercial, economic and strategic interests in Myanmar besides New Delhi's general apathy and callousness towards Muslims but both Beijing and New Delhi must realise that by supporting Myanmar they would be doing injustice to a hapless community.

Violence in Myanmar has invited reactions from around the world.

A European Parliament delegation has postponed its planned visit to Myanmar to an unknown date due to the Rohingya crisis.

When asked why the USA government hasn't condemned the government of Myanmar yet, Nauert said there are reports of extrajudicial killings, sexual violence, the burning Rohingya villages by security forces and also non-Rohingya civilians and her department has condemned the violence at all levels and it couldn't be stronger than that.

The number of Rohingya refugees pouring into Bangladesh since August 25 is nearing 400,000, and United Nations secretary general Antonio Guterres seems exasperated.

The refugees are fleeing a fresh security operation in which security forces and Buddhist mobs have killed men, women and children, looted homes, and torched Rohingya villages.

According to the government of Bangladesh - where thousands of Rohingya have fled - around 3,000 Rohingya have been killed in the crackdown.

The Myanmar authorities have targeted Rohinyga civilians after an insurgent group attacked police and military posts in the northern Rakhine state.
