Two weeks since the attacks, the government still can not set out to implement the recommendations as it has been too busy trying to control the situation on the ground, which is in turmoil due to the ARSA's attacks, militant supporters' attacks on ethnic Rakhine and other groups as well, and military "clearance operations", - all of which have forced hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees to the Bangladesh border and thousands of Rakhine refugees to other cities in the state.

Rohingya militants were suspected of killing 12 Burmese soldiers and government forces were believed to have massacred entire villages. We pray for you to speak out for justice, human rights and the unit of your people. Rohingyas are being persecuted from all sides.

Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh have reported being ordered to leave Myanmar under the threat of death.

A series of co-ordinated attacks by Rohingya insurgents on Myanmar security forces in the north of Myanmar's Rakhine State triggered a crackdown by Myanmar forces that has sent a stream of Rohingya villagers fleeing to Bangladesh.

The UN said there was a sharp increase in arrivals on Wednesday, when at least 300 boats from Myanmar landed in Bangladesh.

One of the speakers, Mark Farmaner from the Burma Campaign UK said the Myanmar leader, "Aung San Suu Kyi's behavior is inexcusable".

Aung San Suu Kyi has fully embraced the recommendations, and has begun creating these mechanisms for implementation. "She must be held accountable and tried", said party spokesman KM Atiqur Rahman.

"What can not be contested is that the corporate and special interests who championed Hilary Clinton in the last USA election, spent years working with think tanks, neoconservatives, and hawkish elements in the Atlantic World security apparatus in order to engineer a strategy for containing China while at once promoting Atlantic World corporate and military interests, all of which was packaged using the "Pivot to Asia" paradigm sold by Hilary Clinton as Obama's secretary of state".
