Nobel institute: Suu Kyi cannot be stripped of prize

"We pray for you to intervene in the escalating crisis and guide your people back towards the path of righteousness". United Nations agencies believe the figure could rise to 300,000 in the coming days.

"Further normalization of the military-to-military relationship with Burma is the last thing we should be doing right now", said Walter Lohman, Asia program director at the right-leaning Heritage Foundation.

Yesterday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Rohingya Muslims face systematic violence including torture, rape and murder in Myanmar.

The Myanmar government claims that about 400 people have been killed so far but the United Nations said the estimated death toll is more than 1,000.

Since becoming Burma's leader previous year, Ms Suu Kyi has been widely accused of failing to halt violence against the Rohingya. Burma's government says 30,000 non-Rohingya have also been displaced by the conflict.

"There has been a significant displacement of local populations following serious allegations of human rights abuses - including mass burnings of Rohingya villages and violence conducted by security forces and also armed civilians", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters on Thursday.

"We have to take care of our citizens". The government, he added, "inherited a host of enormous challenges". "They are being brutalized", Duterte said.

In a rare letter to the UN Security Council on Tuesday, he expressed concern that the violence could spiral into a "humanitarian catastrophe".

During the 15 of the 21 years from 1989 to 2010 when she became one of the world's most prominent political prisoners, I have issued countless statements espousing her freedom and her cause for democracy and human rights in Myanmar.

Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai condemned the "tragic and shameful treatment" of the Rohingya, saying she was "still waiting for my fellow Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to do the same".

"I am now elderly, decrepit and formally retired, but breaking my vow to remain silent on public affairs out of profound sadness".

Gapena chief 1 Datuk Zainal Abidin Borhan said the Nobel prize should be revoked as Suu Kyi did not adhere to the principle of peace and humanity. The Indian government has termed them illegal immigrants. During the past week, that orange streak has grown larger and brighter, and daytime images have shown why: Countless villages and towns in the northern state of Rakhine have been reduced to charred ruins as their residents, members of the Rohingya people, have been driven out of their traditional region, sometimes killed or brutalized, by Myanmar's military in what firsthand observers describe as a systematic ethnic cleansing.

"Part of this is the fault of the global community", said Erin Murphy, a former State Department adviser who accompanied then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the country in 2011. These are mostly multireligious and multiethnic countries, and all have struggled in the past decade with the politics of Buddhist chauvinism and its often violent results. "We want to work with the government, ensure they are focused on this task, have the capacity to address it".
