US To Give $32 Million To Aid the Rohingya

US To Give $32 Million To Aid the Rohingya

The refugees have come by land, river and sea, trekking for days in monsoon weather to find sanctuary in Bangladesh, where almost 200,000 Rohingya were already living in camps.

Van Thio said the government was concerned by reports that Muslims were continuing to cross into Bangladesh even though there had been no armed clashes since September 5th and added: "We would need to find out the reason for this exodus".

The Rohingya crisis is a "textbook example ethnic cleansing", a top United Nations official recently said.

"I am sure Myanmar will take positive steps to take back the Rohingyas".

ARSA was established in October 2016 on behalf of over 1.1 million Rohingya people living in the Myanmar state of Rakhine.

Van Thio did not use the term Rohingya, referring to them simply as Muslims.

Besides sexual violence, early marriage is a risk for Rohingya refugee girls.

Trump Considering Holding Military Parade on July 4
After seeing France's military parade in July, President Donald Trump wants an even grander one for the U.S. Macron ended the message with a common French sign-off: "Kisses".

Diplomats say the Security Council could consider adopting a formal statement if the situation does not improve, but China and Russian Federation are unlikely to agree to stronger action that would require the adoption of a resolution they could veto.

Civilians crossing the border say the army and Buddhist vigilantes went wild to kill Muslims and torch their homes in the Rakhine state.

Myanmar has said its military operations in Rakhine were in response to the August attack and that the military was battling terrorists.

Myanmar is comprised of an 88 percent Buddhist religious majority.

The Burmese military has burned down villages in northern Rakhine state, where the Rohingya live, and committed mass killings along the way, according to Matthew Smith, a founder of the human rights group Fortify Rights. Tillerson "urged the Myanmar government and military to facilitate humanitarian aid for displaced people in the affected areas, and to address deeply troubling allegations of human rights abuses and violations".

For the unversed, the Myanmar State Councillor broke her silence on the Rohingya crisis in the country and said that the government does not fear scrutiny by the worldwide community, in a State of the Union address on Tuesday morning, even as more than 4,00,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled from the northern Rakhine State. Among other priorities, one of the primary themes of this year's General Assembly is bolstering support for humanitarian assistance to ongoing emergencies, in particular for refugees and the communities that host them.
