67 Bangladesh-based diplomats visit Kutupalong Rohingya camp

How much does it cost to house Rohingya refugees

The Foreign Ministry in Dhaka said Myanmar military drones and helicopters had violated its airspace on September 10, 12 and 14, as well as on August 25.

They also urged the global community to put pressure on Myanmar so that the latter stops this humanitarian tragedy.

According to the government of Bangladesh - where thousands of Rohingya have fled - around 3,000 Rohingya have been killed in the crackdown.

Presidential office spokesman Zaw Htay claimed on Thursday that Islamic State was "already active" in Asia along with a link to an article from the Atlantic Treaty Association.

He said all the countries should observe the sanctions imposed by the Security Council and at the same time seize the opportunity it has created for diplomatic engagement.

"We can't go to the northern part because military operations are ongoing", said Bettina Luescher, spokeswoman of the World Food Programme.

He directed the blame toward Myanmar's powerful military, which is responsible for security operations that have seen almost 400,000 people flee to neighbouring Bangladesh in the past three weeks after Rohingya insurgents launched coordinated attacks on government forces.

Around 379,000 Rohingyas have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh since the violence began last month.

UN Secretary General said the Rohingya in Myanmar has been facing a catastrophic humanitarian situation.

Reports of attacks on civilians by Myanmar security forces are "disturbing" and "completely unacceptable", he said.

"Myanmar has taken extreme action against the whole Rohingya community in response to the terrorist actions of a few individuals".

The U.N. criticized Myanmar's government after more than 300,000 Rohingya were forced to flee to escape the violence. That number has now tripled to almost 380,000, ' said Antonio Guterres.

Authorities have denied that the security forces, or Buddhist civilians, have been setting the fires, and have blamed the insurgents.

"The Canadian prime minister has phoned Aung San Suu Kyi so that Myanmar takes back Rohingyas".

Myanmar officials said he would meet government leaders in the capital, Naypyitaw, and attend an address to the nation by Suu Kyi on Tuesday.

There is little sympathy for Rohingya in a country where the end of military rule has unleashed some old communal animosities and the military campaign in Rakhine State is generally supported.

The worldwide criticism of Raftopris victor Aung San Suu Kyi has increased because she has not distanced from the Myanmar Army's intensive assault and ethnic cleansing against the minorities and blockage of the United Nations investigation about the accusation against the Myanmar army.

Officials said she would "speak for national reconciliation and peace".
