The Supreme Court on Monday will hear a plea filed by the two Rohingya immigrants Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir

A group of Muslim Rohingyas in Ghumdhum, Cox's Bazar weep as Bangladesh border guards (not pictured) order them to leave their makeshift camp and force them out of the country on August 28, 2017.

The funding "reflects the U.S. commitment to help address the unprecedented magnitude of suffering and urgent humanitarian needs of the Rohingya people", said the State Department's Acting Assistant Secretary Simon Henshaw on Wednesday at the ongoing UN General Assembly in NY.

The army has been blamed for launching a crackdown in response that has forced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims, along with ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and Hindus, into neighbouring Bangladesh.

Military chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said his forces had handled the situation as best they could and he urged the internally displaced, majority Buddhist, to go home.

A Thai humanitarian team on behalf of the national Islamic committee is due to travel to Cox's Bazar in southeast Bangladesh next week to provide assistance to Rohingya refugees fleeing persecution in Myanmar.

Eli Harold added to injury report, four other 49ers questionable vs. Rams
The biggest takeaways from last Sunday's loss was San Francisco's dominant defense which held the Seahawks to just one touchdown. When the 49ers take on the Rams Thursday night, expect to see Carlos Hyde carry the ball early and often.

He said that India had sent a large quantity of relief material to Bangladesh but claimed that even Bangladesh had security concerns regarding Rohingyas.

In her address, Ms Suu Kyi did not use the term Rohingya to refer to the Muslim minority in Rakhine State.

But refugees in Bangladesh who were aware of her comments took no comfort from that, anticipating little change to policies that have denied their community recognition as a distinct ethnic group and citizenship. This is the first comment the USA has made about the plight of the Rohingya.

Together with other United Nations bodies, the IOM has called for global humanitarian assistance of $77 million.

Other world leaders this week have also called for an end to the violence, with French President Emmanuel Macron calling it "genocide" and Bangladesh's Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina saying it was an "unbearable human catastrophe".

Mr Singh said, the statement of Suu Kyi brings a new hope in this regard.

"We can arrange for you to visit these areas and ask them yourselves why they did not flee", she said.

Ms Suu Kyi did not address that accusation but said her government condemned rights violations and anyone responsible for abuses would face the law.
