Scores of foreign journalists have poured into Bangladesh to cover the Rohingya exodus.

Facing growing condemnation globally, Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi will not attend UN General Assembly meetings September 19-25 to instead deal with what the government said were domestic security issues.

Aid groups and human rights activists have criticised the plans to expel Rohingyas, and some lawyers say deportation would violate India's constitution.

Pillay said she was shocked Suu Kyi hasn't done more to support the Rohingya, when the world had supported during her 15 years under house arrest.

That view was presented Friday by Canadian officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the seriousness of the three-week-old crisis that has helped transform Suu Kyi from a symbol of freedom to a target of worldwide derision.

Rafta Foundation calls its former prize victor Aung San Suu Kyi to condemn the military's assault against civilians and "ethnic cleansing" in Myanmar, writes NRK.

The longtime human rights icon and Nobel peace laureate has been berated for failing to speak up for the Rohingya minority amid a crisis that has shocked the global community.

Ms Suu Kyi is due to address the nation on Tuesday.
