Myanmar mob tries to block Rohingya aid boat

"We expect the global community, like Australia, America, definitely to pursue this Myanmar Government, to take back their citizens", he said.

Japanese foreign minister Taro Kono made the comment during a meeting with his Bangladesh counterpart AH Mahmood Ali in NY on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, the foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

More than 420,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since August 25 when Rohingya insurgent attacks on security forces prompted a military crackdown and reprisals by majority Buddhists.

The activists said their accounts are frequently being suspended or taken down and hoped that the social media giant would let them speak the truth.

However, the US announced Wednesday almost $32 million in humanitarian aid to help Rohingya refugees.

Suu Kyi also defended her country from worldwide criticism and said "more than half" of Rohingya villages were not affected by the violence and invited diplomats and foreign observers to visit them to see "why they are still there when they are surrounded by a state of turmoil" as she addresses the nation on Rakhine issue. On Tuesday, de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi delivered a speech that did not address allegations of serious rights abuses by the army.

The government views members of the ethnic and religious minority as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and not among the dozens of national ethnicities officially recognized by Myanmar.

The Rohingya have been fleeing Buddhist-dominated Myanmar for decades.

The army has been blamed for launching a crackdown in response that has forced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims, along with ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and Hindus, into neighbouring Bangladesh.

"Nine people were killed including six on the spot and three in a hospital", Yasir Arafat, deputy police chief of Bandarban border district, told AFP.

Still, we have provided humanitarian aid to Rohingyas in Bangladesh.

Myanmar denies that, saying its forces are waging a legitimate campaign against Muslim terrorists who have been attacking and torching villages of Buddhists and other non-Muslims, some 30,000 of whom were internally displaced.

The cabinet renewed the Kingdom's calls to the global community to take urgent action to stop the violent acts and to give the Muslim minority in Myanmar their rights without discrimination or racial classification.

US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Patrick Murphy is in Myanmar and was due to meet government officials and representatives of different communities in Sittwe.
