Bangladesh targets refugee boat operators as Rohingya crisis deepens

Bangladesh targets refugee boat operators as Rohingya crisis deepens

Earlier, UN Secretary General António Guterres called on Myanmar to suspend the military crackdown in Rakhine, which began after the August 25 attack on security forces by Rohingya terrorists.

On Thursday, Tillerson directed the blame toward Myanmar's powerful military, which is responsible for security operations that have seen almost 400,000 people flee to neighboring Bangladesh in the past three weeks after Rohingya insurgents launched coordinated attacks on government forces.

He said the Nobel laureate and long-time human rights champion, who has been condemned for a lack of moral leadership and compassion in resolving the crisis, will deliver an address next week on peace and reconciliation in Myanmar.

The UN said Thursday it had been caught by surprise by the crisis, with other worldwide agencies and the Bangladesh government also overwhelmed.

The UN Security Council on Wednesday called for an end to the violence.

Suu Kyi has long faced criticism for failing to champion religious tolerance in Myanmar, where a powerful monk-led Buddhist nationalist movement has fed on seething anti-Muslim sentiment.

Secretary-General Guterres said he has spoken to Suu Kyi several times about the "dramatic tragedy", but not since the announcement that she is skipping the General Assembly.

Cruz said it wasn't "malicious", just simply that a staffer "accidentally hit the wrong button". "The video is from a genre known as step-mom porn".

Up to 400,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh since August 25, with thousands more arriving every day, the Unicef said today.

Murphy told the ambassador that Myanmar should publicly acknowledge that Rohingya groups, in particular, have fled across the border into Bangladesh, the official said, and that those refugees should now be allowed to return home. Recently, a Rohingya militant group coordinated a series of attacks on police and military in Myanmar. "There is no Rohingya, only Bengali terrorists in Rakhine", said the tweet, a reference to Rohingya that suggests they come from Bangladesh.

The United Nations has called for a massive intensification of relief operations to help the refugees, and a much bigger response from the worldwide community. "Our house and fields have been burned so we can not earn our living there anymore", she said.

"We have put Myanmar on notice that unless the persecution and violence stops, we will take action", British MEP Amjad Bashir said.

The administration has also thanked the government of neighboring Bangladesh for hosting the refugees.

Most of the influx is concentrated around the Bangladesh border town of Cox's Bazar where more than 300,000 Rohingya refugees were packed into ill-equipped camps before the violence erupted last month in Rakhine.

Zeid Raad Al Hussein, the United Nations" high commissioner for human rights, said the current operation in Rakhine "seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing'.
