Relief consignment from India reaches Chittagong for Rohingya refugees

The violence in Rakhine and the exodus of refugees is the most pressing problem Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has faced since becoming national leader previous year.

Suu Kyi's defenders, though, insist that she is in an awfully tight spot, having to manage her relationship with the bruising Burmese military at a time when public opinion largely supports its crackdown on the Rohingya.

The president's office said in a statement Tuesday that the new 15-member Implementation Committee of Rakhine Advisory Committee would work on improving security, economic development and social affairs in Rohingya areas, as well as maintaining the sustainability of ethnic villages and removing camps for the displaced.

"When one third of the Rohingya population had to flee the country, could you find a better word to describe it?" he told a news conference in NY.

Suu Kyi, who is also Burma's foreign minister, has been taking telephone calls from foreign leaders concerning the Arakan Crisis, the government spokesman said, without elaborating on whom she had spoken with. Myanmar is predominately Buddhist. They blame the insurgents.

More often than not, they have also proved widely unpopular among the public, according to a slate of opinion polls. Bangladesh authorities say at least 100 bodies have been found in a border river and on nearby beaches, some with wounds.

The UN Security Council on Wednesday called on Myanmar to end the violence following a close-door meeting.

Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International representatives made the charge during a news conference held at United Nations headquarters ahead of closed council discussions Wednesday on the Myanmar crisis, saying they wanted to spotlight the failure of the U.N.'s most powerful body to demand an end to the violence being used by Myanmar to to chase out Rohingya.

It is important to remember here that, despite all the restiveness, India has a permanent diplomatic mission in Rakhine's capital Sittwe, and as per some diplomatic chatter, had warned Myanmar of possible attacks by the ARSA prior to the August incident.
