Rohingya Flee Myanmar, Only to be Exploited in Bangladesh

Rohingya Flee Myanmar, Only to be Exploited in Bangladesh

"That's always our ultimate approach, not to judge but to offer help and to see how we can make the whole region a region of peace and stability, a region where human rights is respected", Cayetano said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May also said in a foreign policy address on Monday that Burma's military should be called to account. It said it found no instances of soldiers using "excessive violence". However, it is unusual for figures such as him, who are against the Rohingya, to be arrested in Myanmar.

More than 600,000 members of the minority Muslim ethnic group have fled to Bangladesh since the army started counter-insurgency operations in Rakhine State, near the border with Bangladesh, in late August this year.

The military said that its report was based on interviews with 3,217 Rohingya villagers, whose citizenship has not been recognized in the country and were referred to in the report as "Bengalis".

Secretary Guterres said, "the dramatic movement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh, is a worrying escalation in a protracted tragedy and a potential source of instability in the region, and radicalization".

"Once again, Myanmar's military is trying to sweep serious violations against the Rohingya under the carpet", AI's Director of Southeast Asia and Pacific James Gomez said.

"There is overwhelming evidence that the military has murdered and raped Rohingya and burned their villages to the ground", Amnesty said in a statement released on Monday evening. One of the human rights group also sought an investigation by the International Criminal Court.

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has come under increasing worldwide pressure to act to prevent further tragedies from occurring.

"It's a major humanitarian crisis".

"I can not hide my deep concern with the dramatic movement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh", Guterres told leaders including Suu Kyi. Trudeau called on Tuesday for a "sustainable and just solution".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is set to meet later this month with Suu Kyi, who has been chastised over her handling of the crisis, which she once blamed on "fake news".

"They're still coming, risking their lives, driven by fears of starvation and violence", Shariful Azam, a police official in Bangladesh's Cox's Bazar, a narrow spit of land where the world's most urgent humanitarian crisis is unfolding.

"The Burmese military's absurd effort to absolve itself of mass atrocities underscores why an independent global investigation is needed to establish the facts and identify those responsible", said Brad Adams, Asia director at HRW.
