Ms Suu Kyi was due to attend the UN General Assembly in NY next week, but has cancelled her visit to deal with the crisis.

Meanwhile UN agencies UNHCR and IOM have launched a joint appeal seeking enhanced humanitarian assistance for fleeing Rohingyas fearing their number could exceed a million as surges of the minority ethnic community from Myanmar continued to hit Bangladesh.

The latest round of fighting broke out in late August when extremists reportedly attacked Myanmar's security forces. The White House said it was "alarmed" by the "allegations of human rights abuses, including extrajudicial killings, burning of villages, massacres, and rape, by security forces and by civilians acting with these forces' consent".

Next steps: The UN Security Council plans to meet Wednesday to discuss the crisis, according to BBC.

'The world looks at Aung San Suu Kyi with the same lens with which it looked at her during her struggle for democracy, ' Bo told TIME in an email.

Britain's UN Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said the council's press statement, following closed-door consultations, was the first statement the UN's most powerful body has made in nine years on the situation in Burma. "We are urgently appealing for more funds", he said.

On the border separating Bangladesh from Myanmar, thousands of Rohingya Muslim families remain in limbo after escaping from the threat of attack.
