Aung San Suu Kyi to skip United Nations assembly amid burgeoning Rohingya crisis

Aung San Suu Kyi feted for her years of peaceful opposition to Myanmar's junta rulers has been urged to speak up for the Rohingya with Muslim nations and the UN leading condemnation of her government

Others said they were attacked by Buddhist mobs.

The humanitarian situation in Myanmar was "catastrophic", Guterres said, and called on all countries to do what they could to supply aid.

Suu Kyi, who the military blocked from becoming president and who says Burma is at the beginning of the road to democracy, could risk being denounced as unpatriotic if she were seen to be criticising a military operation that enjoys widespread public support. They urged the council to hold a public meeting and demand an end to the violence. The authorities in Myanmar must take determined action to put an end to this vicious cycle of violence and to provide security and assistance to all those in need.

Landmines have been planted allegedly by the Myanmar military on the zero points at Tombru, Baishfarhi, Ashartali, Chakdhala, Shapmarajhiri and Lemuchhari along the Naikhyangchhari border to stop the Rohingya from returning to the Rakhine state from Bangladeshi territory.

"Since last night nine bodies were recovered from the river (.) Two to three of them had marks of bullet wound, rest of them died when their boat sank", an official told Efe news, adding that the boats likely sank two or three days ago.

Humayun Rashid, a deputy police chief of Cox's Bazar district, which borders Myanmar, said most of the 99 dead were minors. More flights are planned with the aim of helping 120,000, a spokesman said.

"The arguments that the Myanmar government is using to deny Rohingyas their citizenship are ludicrous, to say the least".

The Foreign Ministry of the United Arab Emirates said the plane is carrying over 100 metric tons (110 tons) of tents made available by the United Nations refugee agency.

Recent violence in Myanmar has driven hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims to seek refuge in Bangladesh.

To implement the recommendations, the signatories suggested reappointing the commission members immediately to constitute an Implementation Committee to oversee the implementation of the recommendations, taking immediate steps to stop the outflow of Rohingyas, inviting global observers on a regular basis to visit vulnerable areas, taking back the refugees and building camps within Myanmar to rehabilitate Rohingyas upon their return with United Nations financing and supervision.

The now disgraced leader vowed to find a solution to ethnic and religious hatred in Rakhine "that will lead to peace, stability and development for all communities within the state".

Attacks by an insurgent Rohingya group on police outposts August 25 have set off a wave of violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state, with hundreds dead and thousands of homes burned - mostly Rohingya in both cases.
