He said to date Turkey had delivered more than $70 million in humanitarian aid to the Rohingya Muslims, and that no country in the world was showing more concern for the Rohingya than Turkey.

Suu Kyi responded positively to a five-point Indonesian plan to stabilize the situation, Marsudi said.

Myanmar says its security forces are fighting a legitimate campaign against "terrorists" responsible for a string of attacks on police posts and the army since last October. They took a week to reach Bangladesh hiding in villages along the way. Several of the photos show hundreds of people sitting on the ground, with meager belongings.

Myanmar security forces claim that 370 fighters affiliated with the Arakan Rohingya Salvatoni Army (ARSA) were killed after a series of attacks on police outposts.

In writing the report, the activists conducted more than 350 interviews over an eight-month period from people across Myanmar, including inside Rakhine State, where access is often restricted.

In the second half we got more space and we scored a goal, but it could have gone the other side of the post. But one minute after that, Lukaku headed into the far corner after being picked out by Thomas Meunier.

To make matters worse, the Burmese government blocked United Nations aid agencies from delivering food, water and medicine to the Rohingyas. In the beginning of August, angry monks began protesting outside Myanmar's most famous temple and accused the government of failing to protect Buddhism even though the ruling National League for Democracy did not put forward a single Muslim candidate for the parliament in 2015.

Stylianides said the European Union supports efforts by Bangladesh authorities to provide safety for the refugees, and said caring for them is "crucial" until they can return to their homes.

Presidential sources said the two leaders discussed ways to address the current crisis and how to provide the local population with humanitarian aid.

Earlier on Tuesday, a Myanmar rights group said the systematic persecution of minority Muslims is on the rise across Myanmar and not confined to the northwestern state of Rakhine, where recent violence has sent almost 90,000 Muslim Rohingya fleeing.

The Amnesty's plea came on a day Union Minister Kiren Rijiju asserted that Rohingyas who have crossed over to India are illegal immigrants and stand to be deported.

The status of an estimated 40,000 Rohingya refugees in India is also uncertain.

Rohingya camped out in Cox's Bazar said they don't want to move to the island, fearing they could die there during the monsoon season and there won't be any work.

UNHCR spokeswoman Vivian Tan said Tuesday that the latest number is a result of aid workers conducting new, more accurate counts in both established and makeshift refugee camps.

Violence over the past few days in Myanmar's Rakhine state has killed almost hundreds of people and prompted thousands of Muslims to flee into neighbouring Bangladesh.

Tan said "the numbers are very worrying". They have very limited understanding of the available services.
