Muslim nations calls Myanmar to stop Rohingya persecution

  • Erdoğan Turkey will continue to send aid to Rohingya Muslims

Hundreds of protesters in Indonesia rallied for the third straight day on Monday as Muslim nations across Asia voiced growing concern over Myanmar's brutal military crackdown against its Rohingya Muslim minority.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson warned Ms Suu Kyi that the treatment of the ethnic minority group was "besmirching" the country's reputation.

But she has made no comment since the latest fighting broke out, a silence that Malala, who survived being shot in the head by the Pakistani Taliban when she was just 15, has urged Suu Kyi to break. "I am still waiting for my fellow Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to do the same".

"I have repeatedly condemned this tragic and shameful treatment".

"We as the humankind have to take action and take the head of the mayanmar state Aung San Suu Kyi and the armed forces' commander-in-chief, Ming Aung Hlaing to the global court (The Hague) I.C.J or to The European Court of Human Rights so both of them can answer to their hate crimes", the petition demands.

Stylianides said the European Union supports efforts by Bangladesh authorities to provide safety for the refugees, and said caring for them is "crucial" until they can return to their homes. As a result, the Muslim-inhabited territories in the northern part of Rakhine state turned into a foothold of religious extremists who had championed secession from Burma (Myanmar), joining East Pakistan (Bangladesh) since 1947. Some wondered whether the Nobel Committee, which conferred the honor on her in 1991, would publicly criticize her or could even revoke the prize.

Russian Federation condemns N. Korea's latest test
For the first time, North Korea also specifically mentioned the possibility of a electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, attack. Kim signed off on the plan, but is watching the moves by the USA before deciding when or whether to carry it out.

Satellite images have revealed an entire village in Myanmar burned to the ground amid the country's ongoing violence that erupted in August.

Their arrival has raised fears of a fresh humanitarian disaster as already crowded camps in Bangladesh-home to around 400,000 Rohingya refugees before the latest crisis- struggle to cope with the influx.

"We think it's vital that she receives the support of the Burmese military and that her attempts at peace-making are not frustrated".

The UNHCR's new refugee estimate was the result of aid workers conducting new, more accurate counts that revised Monday's estimate up from 87,000, Ms Tan said. "The world is waiting and the Rohingya Muslims are waiting", she added. "The Buddhist government of Burma is unlashing atrocities over the minority community there from last many years and they are openly killing them ruthlessly", Geelani said.

That approach includes restoring stability and security, maximizing self-restraint and desisting from violence, providing inclusive protection to everyone in Rakhine State and allowing open access for humanitarian aid to enter the region.
