The exodus accounts for almost a third of Myanmar's Rohingya population, creating a humanitarian emergency as a flood of famished and wounded refugees pour into Bangladesh's already overcrowded camps.

Around 3,13,000 Rohingya refugees have arrived in the last two weeks, pushing the number of Rohingyas living in this country to over 6,00,000. An Associated Press reporter witnessed hundreds streaming through the border at Shah Puri Dwip today.

The true figure could be even higher - the United Nations said many new arrivals are still on the move and are therefore left out of the calculations.

If state sovereignty and security are perceived to be threatened by "what they call the Rohingya insurgency", then Modi is complicit in "Suu Kyi's approach not to call out on the military's abuses of power in the Rakhine state", he said. He mentioned that the 1992 agreement recognised Rohingya as "members of Myanmar society". Some say they were attacked by Buddhist mobs.

Speaking at a press conference in Berlin on Monday, Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert voiced great concern over the recent violence and human rights violations.

"The worldwide community is saying it is a genocide".

"The killing, arson, torture and rape".

"It is now a national problem", he said.

Responding to a query, the foreign secretary told newsmen that India and China have also committed to stay beside Bangladesh in this critical juncture.

In the last two weeks, the government hospital in Cox's Bazar has been overwhelmed by Rohingya patients, with 80 arriving in the last two weeks suffering gunshot wounds as well as bad infections.

"The Zionist regime's plot to cleanse its cruel and child-killing image and promote the culture of cruelty and oppression against children, the elderly and innocent people in coordination with the government of Myanmar shows a awful and organized crime against the deprived Rohingya Muslims", Ali Akbar Velayati, the secretary general of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening, said in a statement on Saturday.

The violence and exodus began on August 25 when Rohingya insurgents attacked Myanmar police and paramilitary posts in what they said was an effort to protect their ethnic minority from persecution by security forces in the majority Buddhist country.

In response, the military intensified "clearance operations" against "terrorists", driving thousands of people from their homes.

The resolution was passed in the wake of fresh refugee inflow from Myanmar, triggered by what the United Nations calls ethnic cleansing being carried out by the Myanmar military in the Rakhine state following insurgent attacks on police posts and an army base on August 25.

The US Department of State said Saturday it is "very concerned" about the violence unfolding in the region, but stopped short of criticizing the country's government or its de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

While Burmese Buddhists in Myanmar also worship the Buddha, they follow a different religious tradition than Tibetans and do not recognize the Dalai Lama as their spiritual leader.
