USA targets Myanmar military over Rohingya violence

Caritas Bangladesh launches humanitarian relief for Rohingya refugees

Jordan's Queen Rania visited Rohingya refugee camps on Monday and called for a stronger response from the worldwide community to the plight of the Rohingya Muslims who fled to Bangladesh to escape "systematic persecution" in Myanmar.

Speaking at a news conference in Kutupalong refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, the Queen told the harrowing and heartbreaking stories she heard from Rohingya Muslims.

The U.S.is taking steps to punish Myanmar for its treatment of Rohingya Muslims.

Bangladesh has for decades faced influxes of Rohingya fleeing persecution in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, where the Rohingya are seen as illegal migrants.

On Monday, the State Department said it's considering targeted sanctions as well as re-imposing broader economic sanctions suspended under the Obama administration.

The Kingdom also received more than 300,000 Rohingya Muslims, a persecuted minority in Myanmar, over the past 40 years, making the Kingdom the second country hosting Rohingya after Bangladesh.

Original Xbox games to launch on Xbox One tomorrow
Basically, you can have players on the original Xbox, Xbox One , and Xbox One X face each other in old-school LAN parties. For instance, games that supported system link play - such as Crimson Skies - will still support system link play.

Measures already taken include ending travel waivers for current and former members of the military in Myanmar, also known as Burma, and barring units and officers in northern Rakhine state from U.S. assistance, it said.

"We really hold the military leadership accountable for what's happening in the Rohingya area..."

The State Department made the announcement ahead of US President Donald Trump's maiden visit to the region early next month when he will attend a summit of ASEAN countries, including Myanmar, in Manila.

Critics have accused the Trump administration of acting too slowly and timidly in response to the Rohingya crisis.

Italy's diplomats will also work within the European Union and the UN Security Council to ensure that Myanmar's security forces respect human rights, that civilians were protected and that the UN gains humanitarian access to the area, the Foreign Ministry said. But most refugees chose to stay back in Bangladesh.
