Rohingya refugee camps bursting at seams as 270000 people flee Myanmar

Civil society protests against Rohingyas genocide in Myanmar

Meanwhile, a Pakistani lawyer Barrister Iqbal Jafri has submitted an application to the International Court of Justice seeking registration of a case against Myanmar ruling party head Aung San Suu Kyi and religious leader Ashen Waratho for their alleged involvement in killing of Rohingya Muslims.

Previously, Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate, had also confronted Ms Suu Kyi on Twitter over the violence against the Rohingya. "She must be held accountable and tried", said party spokesman KM Atiqur Rahman.

"Iran has tried to establish contacts with the Myanmar government via its accredited ambassador to Thailand in a bid to pave the ground for sending Iran's humanitarian aid to Rohingya Muslims by Red Crescent Society", Bahram Qassemi said on Friday.

The office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees says the number of people who have fled to Bangladesh to escape violence in Myanmar's western state of Rakhine has reached 313,000.

Once that point was reached, the theory goes, the Democrats would be able to get single-payer through Congress. Bernie Sanders that would guarantee everyone in the country is covered by health insurance.

According to recent figures, Bangladesh has taken in nearly 300,000 of the displaced Rohingyas.

He added that Myanmar's government must address the long-standing grievances and the miserable situation of its Muslim community, observe their rights in an effective manner and recognize them as equal citizens while protecting them in the face of violence and discrimination. Ali accused Myanmar of running a "malicious propaganda" campaign to term the Rohingya as "illegal migrants from Bangladesh" and the militants as "Bengali terrorists".

It triggered a fresh influx of refugees to neighboring Bangladesh, which already hosted around 400,000 Rohingya. The report said $77 million in funding was needed to deliver urgent aid to the new arrivals.

The Browns cut the deficit to 14-10 on a 24-yard field goal by rookie Zane Gonzalez with 9:27 left in the third quarter. Watt was raising eyebrows in his National Football League debut on Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Browns .

Satellite photos released by Human Rights Watch show entire villages torched to the ground in clashes between Myanmar's armed forces and local militants.

Thailand has also said it was preparing to receive people fleeing the fighting in Myanmar.

Senator John McCain of Arizona also wrote to Ms Suu Kyi this week, noting that he had been her friend and supporter and calling on her "to take an active role in putting a stop to this worsening humanitarian crisis as it spreads throughout the country". The impact of ARSA's move is unclear, but it does not appear to have been able to put up significant resistance against the military force unleashed in Rakhine state, where thousands of homes have been burned down and dozens of villages destroyed.
