Even as he refused to comment on the Indian government's decision to deport Rohingyas back to Myanmar, Mr. Alam said that they had received "assurances" from India regarding support on the Rohingya issue. "Landmines are allegedly being laid with systematic violations of worldwide law, which if established by a court of law, amount to crimes against humanity".

Wang also said that "China looks forward to the war falling silent as soon as possible, when innocents will no longer be hurt", adding that China would be providing emergency humanitarian assistance to Bangladesh to deal with the flood of refugees from Myanmar.

Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has condemned "human rights violations and unlawful violence" in Rakhine state.

Organizer Abu Hafizullah says Canada can raise this issue in the United Nations and put pressure on Myanmar's government, which is accused of systematically attacking Rohingya villages.

"The United Nations Security Council and concerned countries should impose targeted sanctions and an arms embargo on the Burmese military to end its ethnic cleansing campaign against Rohingya Muslims", the group said in a statement. He said if that's true, Ms Suu Kyi should give worldwide journalists more access to their destroyed villages.
