Visualizing the influx of Rohingya refugees

Aid shipment disturbed by Buddhist mob in Myanmar

"We applaud the government of Bangladesh's generosity in responding to this severe humanitarian crisis and appreciate their continued efforts to ensure assistance reaches people in need", the US State Department said in a statement.

The Congress said that the Centre should make public "whatever evidences" it has about any links of some of the Rohingyas with the ISIS and take action as per the Indian law against those found having any such connection.

Heavy rains are causing more upheaval, with refugees living in flooded temporary shelters, many of which are located in parts of Bangladesh's border town of Cox's Bazar.

The aid is going mostly into Bangladesh but also through Indonesia and Malaysia, he said.

"It is not the intention of the Myanmar government to apportion blame or to abdicate responsibility", Suu Kyi said during a highly anticipated televised national address in the capital, where some 500 diplomats and members of the media were gathered. The deadly attacks led to a massive crackdown by Myanmar's security forces prompting condemnation by human rights monitors.

The Rohingya Muslims, who have taken refuge in Cox's Bazar and Teknaf border areas in Bangladesh after they fled the barbarous persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine state, are now suffering due to an absence of food, shelters, medicines, sanitation facilities and clean water.

We are helping them [the Rohingyas] because they face threat in Myanmar.

The United Nations has said the military response to the insurgent attacks is ethnic cleansing aimed at pushing the Rohingya Muslim community out of Buddhist-majority Myanmar.

An aid truck veered off a road and crashed in Bangladesh on Thursday, killing at least nine aid workers and injuring another 10.

Trump Administration Could Allow Commercial Fishing In Marine National Monument
Notably, the monument is near the home of Cliven Bundy, the scofflaw rancher who led an armed standoff with federal officials. Conservationist groups slammed the recommendation, while fishing groups said they've been making the same proposal all along.

Suu Kyi, who decided not to attend the UN General Assembly in NY later this week, said she was "aware of the fact that the world's attention is focused on the situation in Rakhine" and that Myanmar "does not fear worldwide scrutiny", CNN reported.

The de facto leader made the remarks in her first national address over the Rakhine violence.

Thousands of Rohingyas have poured into Bangladesh - and some into India - after fleeing a military offensive in Myanmar's Rakhine state.

Indonesia appreciates China's stance and is willing to maintain consultation with China, she said.

Should the extensive violation of the basic human rights of the Rohingya Muslims be left unattended, it would further encourage extremism and even become a destabilizing factor for the entire region.

In Myanmar, where 'Facebook is [essentially] the internet, ' this claim, if proven correct, worsens the current state of affairs.

"The court has no business to interfere in such matters of what they call illegal immigrants or illegal migrants", the government said in the affidavit.

And, in Canada, Ms May appeared flat-footed when Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister, revealed he had personally spoken with Ms San Suu Kyi, to urge her to pull back.
