Aung San Suu Kyi should condemn the atrocities against the Rohingyas

Still, there are some who have excused and chosen to interpret Aung San Suu Kyi's silence on the Rohingya's suffering, as neutral.

The surge of refugees - many sick or wounded - has strained the resources of aid agencies and communities already helping hundreds of thousands from previous spasms of violence in Myanmar. The UNHCR's Duniya Aslam Khan said most who had made it across the border are in a poor condition.

"The numbers are so alarming - it really means that we have to step up our response and that the situation in Myanmar has to be addressed urgently". That triggered an army counteroffensive in which at least 400 people died.

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Thursday her government was doing its best to protect everyone in Rakhine.

Her diplomats are working with Russian Federation and the United Nations to prevent criticism of the government at Security Council level, and she herself has characterised the latest violence as a problem of terrorism. Myanmar has said it is was counting on China and Russian Federation to protect it from any Security Council censure.

As global controversy rages over the crackdown - and Ms Suu Kyi's defence of her government's actions - a number of Dublin councillors have called for her freedom of Dublin City award to be revoked.

"This is an explosive situation right now", he said. Many have no shelter, and aid agencies are racing to provide clean water, sanitation and food. "But much more is needed and we are fast running out of stock", Margo Baars, of the International Organization for Migration, said. "We do need to solve this problem at the source". "It will continue for weeks and weeks".

Although the Government has now assured that no more Rohingyas would be sent to Jammu & Kashmir, the steady trickle of refugees has not stopped. The victims are Rohingyas, a Muslim minority that has been persecuted by the Burmese authorities with varying degrees of ferocity since the 1980s.

"We coordinated with village elders and imams yesterday to reorganize civilians who do not get involved in terror attacks on security forces to be able to return to their homes".

It says about 30,000 non-Muslims have been displaced.

The vast majority of Burmese share the official view, that Rohingyas are foreign interlopers; many also imagine that, as Muslims, they are plotting against Buddhism, the religion of the majority. Since then, atrocities on Rohingyas in Myanmar have increasingly drawn attention in India. But it would seem the plan is unlikely to be accepted there. Its mandate was flawed as it was limited to development, health and education in Rakhine and excluded human rights violations.

"If safety can not even be found in area capitals, then no place may be safe", said Phil Robertson, the group's deputy Asia director. They have also been reported to enter Mizoram which shares a border with Myanmar. It was not clear who was responsible.

South Africa Anti-Apartheid campaigner and social rights activist, Desmond Tutu has condemned Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi for her silence on the painful and dreaded "ethnic cleansing" of Rohingya Muslims in her country.

Rights monitors and Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh say the Myanmar army has been trying to force them out of Rakhine state with a campaign of arson and killings.

Murphy called for implementation of recommendations of a commission led by former United Nations chief Kofi Annan set up to find solutions for the ethnically and religiously divided Rakhine. Otherwise, he said, the violence could spread throughout Rakhine and around the country.

The minister's office urged that the Rohingya be recognized and respected in the country. The de facto leader of Myanmar is showing what others have in the past: partiality, a harsh streak, and a cold blooded instinct.

Malaysia will likely house the Rohingya refugees in immigration detention centres, where foreigners without documents are typically held, he said.

Thailand has also said it is preparing to receive people fleeing Myanmar, while Singapore said it was ready to help the humanitarian effort.
