Suu Kyi calls for unity, cre­ates com­mit­tee

Star Tribune - - DEAL! -

Myan­mar’s em­bat­tled leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, called for unity and said she has cre­ated a com­mit­tee that will over­see all in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal as­sis­tance in vi­o­lence-struck Rakhine state. More than 500,000 Ro­hingya Mus­lims have fled since Aug. 25, when se­cu­rity forces re­sponded to at­tacks by a mil­i­tant Ro­hingya group with a broad crack­down on the long-per­se­cuted Mus­lim mi­nor­ity. Suu Kyi said her govern­ment is hold­ing talks with Bangladesh on the refugees’ re­turn.
