With World's Eyes on Rohingya Crisis, Myanmar's Top General Calls for Unity Rohingya Muslims Deportation: Govt to Clarify Stand in Supreme Court Today

"France will work with its partners at the UN Security Council to take the initiative to get the UN to condemn the continuing genocide and ethnic cleansing", Macron said in an interview with French broadcaster TMC in NY.

According to Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Abul Hasan Mahmood Ali, who has also termed the killings "genocide", around 3,000 Rohingya have been killed in the crackdown.

The aid shipment was bound for the north of the Rakhine State where insurgent attacks on August 25 sparked a military backlash.

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.

Eight people were detained and several police were injured before order was restored late at night.

The plea said that India has ratified and is a signatory to various conventions that recognise the Principle of "Non-Refoulement', which prohibits deportation of refugees to a country where they may face threat to their lives". The government has blamed the Rohingya, even saying they set fire to their own homes, but the United Nations and others accuse it of ethnic cleansing. Bandarban is a neighbouring district where thousands of Rohingya also have fled.

Myanmar's minority Rohingya Muslims are living in the midst of a crisis.

Myanmar has said its military operations in Rakhine were in response to the August attack and that the military was battling terrorists. No injuries were reported.

The State Department said that the money will be used for emergency shelter, food assistance, water, and crisis reduction, among other things. As the crowd swelled to 300, they started throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at the officers, who responded by firing into the air, said police officer Phyo Wai Kyaw.

Suu Kyi earlier yesterday delivered a nationally televised address on the Rohingya crisis, appealing for outside observers to visit Myanmar and see the situation for themselves, in a speech aimed at appeasing an global community horrified by the army-led violence in Rakhine.

Though Myanmar's leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, told diplomats this week humanitarian assistance was being sent to those who remain in northern Rakhine, the government has blocked all United Nations assistance to the area, granting access to only the Red Cross. "And it will sow seeds of hatred and chaos that may well consume the region for generations to come and threaten the peace of us all", Pence said.

"I am sure Myanmar will take positive steps to take back the Rohingyas".
