The Myanmar leader whose official title is state counsellor continues to face strong criticism from world leaders over her silence on the ongoing Rohingya crisis that has seen almost 400,000 muslims flee to Bangladesh.

But a Bangladeshi border force officer said the number of people crossing into his area had fallen sharply, apparently because everyone had left districts most affected by the violence.
On Monday night, she lambasted Myanmar for "atrocities" that she said had reached a level beyond description, telling lawmakers she had "no words to condemn Myanmar".
Suu Kyi and the Myanmar armed forces - which she does not command - have faced searing criticism since a deadly attack by Rohingya insurgents on August 25 triggered a devastating military reprisal against militants and civilians alike.
The crisis has drawn sharp criticism from around the world. But the scale of the violence suggests-as do the Rohingya themselves-that this may well be an organized government plan to wipe out the Muslim minority, which has shared an uncomfortable relationship with Myanmar's Buddhist-majority for decades.
The spokesperson was responding to a question on role of regional players in helping Rohingya refugees.
The ongoing actions of Myanmar's armed forces, which are believed to have intensified following the August attacks, are a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing," United Nations human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said Monday. "The UN security council should have seen this coming long ago", Louis Charbonneau of Human Rights Watch said at a press conference today.
"The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says an estimated 370,000 Rohingya refugees have fled into Bangladesh since 25 August", Dujarric said.
Myanmar police disputed that, saying the houses were burned by terrorists they called Bengalis.
Meanwhile, Head of the Relief and Rescue Organization of the IRCS Morteza Salimi said the Islamic Republic is also prepared to set up field hospitals for Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh.
On Wednesday Zaw Htay said there had been a total of 471 Rohingya villages in three townships. According to the Bangladesh government, around 3,000 Rohingya have been killed in the crackdown.
"We will not tolerate injustice", she said at a rally at the Kutupalong refugee camp, near the border town of Ukhiya. The government was also fingerprinting and registering new arrivals. "Many of the new refugees are staying in makeshift settlements or with host communities..." Basic resources were scarce, including food, clean water and medical aid.
Authorities, while expressing concern over the suffering, said its forces were carrying out their legitimate duty to restore order in response to acts of extremism.
Rohingya families have been arriving in Bangladesh from Myanmar in waves since the 1970s. The Rohingya Muslims are being forced to leave their homeland Rakhine State with a population of more than 1 million. "It is a campaign that is targeting the Rohingya", not a counterinsurgency operation as Myanmar's government claims.
I would like to draw your kind attention to the persecuted Muslims of Myanmar.
