On Sept. 7, the first lady visited Rohingya camps in Bangladesh's Cox's Bazar district near Myanmar border, and distributed humanitarian aids to the refugees and listen their peril stories.

Myanmar says more than 430 people have been killed, a lot of them militants, and about 30,000 non-Muslim villagers have been displaced.

Dhaka: Upon her visit to Bangladesh, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled to escape the violence in Myanmar's Rakhine State, Turkey's First Lady Emine Erdogan on Saturday called on the wives of world leaders to mobilize the global community over the plight of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Worldwide media says Bangladesh is limiting the movement of more than 400,000 Rohingya migrants who have fled from neighbouring Myanmar. But the Army said it was responding to attacks by militants and denied targeting civilians.

Mr Kobir joined politicians, human rights groups and faith leaders of several religions to address hundreds at a demonstration outside Parliament in Perth this weekend.

The new shelters for Rohingyas will be on a site covering about 8 sq km of land, close to established camps which have been overwhelmed by arrivals from Myanmar, the Daily Star reported.

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri expressed concern about the ongoing Rohingya Muslim crisis in Myanmar, calling for Muslim world action to help end the plight of the Muslim minority.

Women, children, older people and those with disabilities were especially vulnerable, with reports of violence against women on the rise since the start of the humanitarian disaster, Oxfam said.

The Rohingya Muslim crisis continues to deteriorate as aid organisations struggle to support the skyrocketing number of refugees fleeing Myanmar into Bangladesh.

Half of the children in Rakhine were malnourished, according to the UN Children's Fund. "Clean water and sanitation can only be delivered in a structured environment".

More than 430 people have been killed, a lot of them insurgents, and about 30,000 non-Muslim villagers have been displaced, the government said.

Military says its "clearance operations" in northern Rakhine state are aimed at taking out Rohingya militants who attacked police posts on August 25.
