Wild elephants kill 2 Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh

Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi delivers a televised speech to the nation at the Myanmar International Convention Center in Naypyitaw, Myanmar, on Tuesday.

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres says Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has "one last chance" to stop the country's military onslaught against Rohingya Muslims.

"We are committed to the restoration of peace and stability and rule of law throughout the state".

Although she said she felt deeply for the suffering of those caught in the ongoing conflict, Suu Kyi did not use the term "Rohingya" to refer to the Muslim minority in Rakhine State.

Charbonneau urged the General Assembly to draft a resolution condemning the abuses and called on the Security Council to impose targeted sanctions and an arms embargo on the commanders leading the military crackdown. Human-rights groups have accused security forces and Buddhist vigilantes of indiscriminately attacking Muslims and burning their villages.

"The whole worldwide community hasn't paid attention to what is going on there - or taken any measures to actually stop the genocide from happening", event organizer Raid Salim said.

Alam said Bangladesh had given proposals to Myanmar for talks on the Rohingya crisis, but did not receive any "favourable response".

Members of a pressure group known as the Freedom and Justice Group, have embarked on a demonstration at Obra spot in Ghana's capital Accra, over what they describe as the persecution of Muslim Minority Rohingya population in Myanmar.

Over the last few weeks the Rohingya have fled Myanmar by the thousands to neighbouring Bangladesh.

Zeid Raad Al Hussein, the United Nations" high commissioner for human rights, said the current operation in Rakhine "seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing'. The event was organized by former Concordia student Majed Jam, who said his primary goals were to inspire action and raise awareness about the plight of the Rohingya.

According to the rights group, Myanmar's armed forces had even notified people in some Rohingya villages that they were going to burn their homes to the ground.

Ms Suu Kyi had earlier claimed that the crisis was being distorted by a "huge iceberg of misinformation" and said tensions were being fanned by fake news promoting the interests of terrorists.

Rohingya elder Kamal Hossain said the two refugees killed by elephants were new arrivals, who had taken refuge in a forested area near the sprawling Kutupalong camp.
