  • The festival comes as renewed violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state forces thousands of Rohingya

A crackdown by Myanmar's army, launched in response to attacks by Rohingya militants on August 25, has sent almost 400,000 refugees from the stateless Muslim minority fleeing into neighboring Bangladesh.

Aung San Suu Kyi will give a public address next week on the crisis involving Burma's Rohingya minority, her spokesman has said.

(CNN) - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for an end to the "horrors" in Myanmar's Rakhine state Thursday, saying the violence represents a "defining moment" for the country's new civilian government.

Talking to reporters here, Tillerson also likened the violence against Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims to ethnic cleansing.

"We are very much active in relation to the Rohingya crisis but unfortunately it has not been easy because the government of Myanmar until now has been completely deaf to our requests", Guterres said on September 15.

The Southeast Asian nation's first civilian leader in decades has faced worldwide condemnation for a lack of moral leadership regarding the Rohingya, victims of what the UN views as a campaign of ethnic cleansing.

"Violence in Myanmar has created a humanitarian catastrophe".

An estimated 380,000 Rohingya refugees have fled the violence in Myanmar and are now seeking refuge in Bangladesh, UN Secretary General António Guterres said Wednesday.

NY (U.S.A.) Sept 14 (ANI): United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday reiterated his call for Muslims from Myanmar's Rakhine state to be granted nationality or at least a legal status that would allow them to lead a normal life, while also urging the global community to help provide assistance for the almost 380,000 people who have fled into Bangladesh.

Rohingya refugees are seen at Thaingkhali makeshift refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, September 14, 2017. Since the Rohingya are considered to be illegal Bengali immigrants and were denied recognition as a religion by the government of Myanmar, the dominant group, the Rakhine, rejects the label "Rohingya" and have started to persecute the Rohingya.
