USA to provide $32 million in aid to Rohingya fleeing Myanmar

Mob attack Red Cross crash hamper urgently-needed Rohingya aid

The leader has asked for patience from the worldwide community, refuting claims that more than half of the Rohingya villages had been destroyed. The alliance's spokesperson Mohammad Nasim said on Wednesday that it was unfortunate that Ms. Suu Kyi did not even mention the word "Rohingya" in her speech.

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said: "The aid will go help Rohingya who've fled to Bangladesh, internally displaced persons in Rakhine State, and host communities". Aid organisations and refugees have claimed the military attacked Rohingyas, committed sexual violence against them and burned down their homes.

She has previously said, however, that the UN's decision to establish the independent FFM was not "in keeping with what is actually happening on the ground".

Facebook enabled the advertisers to direct their pitches to the news feeds of nearly 2,300 people who expressed interest in the topics of "Jew hater", "How to burn jews" or "History of why jews ruin the world", a ProPublica investigation has revealed. If it's a lie, then you can throw me in the sea and kill me.

He stated the history of Rohingyas settlement in Myanmar, which is about 1500 years old and said that Rohingyas have an affinity for Bangla and some other languages such as Pashtu, Arabic, and Portuguese. She also tweeted saying, "The world is waiting and the Rohingya Muslims are waiting". "She is a dark spot on the Nobel Peace Prize", he averred.

He said that the issue of deportation of Rohingyas for India is not a matter of ego and confrontation but of principles. Subsequently, 10,000 online petitions were filed by Canadians asking to remove Su Kyi's honorary Canadian citizenship, according to media reports.

TSX higher as banks, energy stocks gain
The report said industrial production slumped by 0.9 percent in August after climbing by an upwardly revised 0.4 percent in July. Most of the major sectors showed only modest moves on the day, although significant strength emerged among semiconductor stocks.

"People thought the aid was only for the Bengalis", the secretary of the state government, Tin Maung Swe, told Reuters, using a term that Rohingya find offensive.

Hong Liang, Chinese ambassador to Myanmar, had a different view.

Van Thio said the government recognized the need to ensure humanitarian assistance was provided "to all those in need without discrimination".

However, she did not address United Nations accusations of ethnic cleansing by the military, which is in charge of security.

The NHRC strongly believes that human rights are universal and thus any violation of human rights could not be taken in isolation, he said, adding that it is vital to look at how this scenario has impacted on the local population. He said their Vice-Minister would visit Myanmar soon.

This week, Britain suspended a training programme for Myanmar officers because of the violence and called on the army to stop the violence.
