United Nations seeks 'massive' help for Rohingya fleeing Myanmar 'ethnic cleansing'

Mohamed Ayas 15 was shot in the back by Myanmarese soldiers as he attempted to flee his village in Myanmar's western Rakhine State

Following a closed-door meeting, the 15-member council including China, a supporter of Myanmar's former ruling junta, expressed concern about excessive force during security operations in Rakhine state and called for "immediate steps" to end the violence.

A statement issued by the ministry last Saturday noted that it was also concerned about the "outflow of refugees from that region".

It was the first time in nine years that this had happened in relation to Myanmar, he added.

United Nations officials working southeastern Cox's Bazar earlier today estimated the current spate of violence in Ralhine drove out some 400,000 Rohingyas to take refuge in Bangladesh while Dhaka said the country was hosting another 400,000 before the latest influx began on August 25.

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres called the persecution of Rohingyas "catastrophic" and "completely unacceptable", and asked Myanmar authorities to immediately suspend the military crackdown. Some 389,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since violence began last month. Whole villages have burned down.

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. They blame the insurgents, and say 30,000 non-Muslim villagers were also displaced.

He said he understood that Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel prize laureate and de-facto head of the government in Myanmar, was in a power-sharing agreement with the military and the "complex situation" in which she found herself.

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday he had spoken with Suu Kyi and that she said she was working to get aid to areas affected by violence.

Suu Kyi has been criticised by former supporters in the West for failing to do enough to prevent the violence in Rakhine state.

With refugee camps overflowing and hundreds of thousands of Rohingya struggling to find shelter, food and other essential services, aid workers say they are deeply anxious by the continuing influx of people by land and water.

The pair's lawyer said they were charged with "false impersonation" and providing "false information" after police accused them of using the cover of tourist visas to enter the country, instead of journalist visas.

Highly traumatized, they are arriving malnourished and injured after walking for days, The Independent reported.
