Perception of Rohingya as persecuted is 'superficial', says Masing

India supports Bangladesh’s stance on Rohingya

Bibeau said the funds will also help victims of gender-based violence, and will be provided to three different United Nations agencies. The Rohingya crisis from Myanmar has caused more than 300,000 to flee Myanmar.

Critics have called for her to be stripped of her Nobel Peace Prize for failing to do more to halt the strife.

The U.N. Security Council condemned the violence in Myanmar's Rakhine State that sparked the mass exodus.

The decision to deport Rohingyas comes as Myanmar's military crackdown in Rakhine has forced hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas to seek shelter in Bangladesh, in a process the United Nations has described as ethnic cleansing.

Bangladesh will use troops to deliver foreign aid to the border town that has been overwhelmed by Rohingya Muslim refugees from Myanmar, authorities announced.

Myanmar says its forces are carrying out their legitimate duty to restore order after guerrilla attacks on August 25 on security posts and an army camp in which about a dozen people were killed.

Myanmar alone can't do anything to stop the plight faced by the Rohingya community there, as it is a problem that has gone on for centuries, says Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister James Masing.

Suu Kyi, whose reputation as a human rights champion has been left battered by her response to the crisis, is to make a speech on the issue next week.

But with more than 230,000 children estimated to have arrived in Bangladesh, many more will need help, Mr. Boulierac said.

Murphy summoned Myanmar's ambassador to the U.S., Aung Lynn, Wednesday to express U.S. concerns about the violence, including recent attacks on Rohingya villages, according to a senior State Department official, who called the message sent by the move "a tough one".

What is now happening in the region is "crimes against humanity - systematic attacks and forcible deportation of civilians", Tirana Hassan, Amnesty International's crisis response director, said.

The Myanmar government says about 400 people have been killed in the latest fighting in Rakhine. He also reiterated his call for the government to grant the Rohingyas nationality or at least legal status so they can get jobs, education and health care. The Rohingyas are a Muslim minority living in Buddhist Myanmar where they are denied citizenship, rejected as Bengali immigrants, and have endured decades of persecution.
