Fled Rohingya Muslims reject Suu Kyi’s claims

Rohingya Muslims who fled violence in Myanmar are rejecting leader Aung San Suu Kyi's claims that many members of their minority group are safe.

Suu Kyi said Tuesday that most Rohingya villages weren't hit by violence. She invited foreign diplomats gathered in the capital for her speech to visit villages that were unaffected, reports AP.

In the Kutupalong refugee camp in nearby Bangladesh, Abdul Hafiz says Rohingya once trusted Suu Kyi more than the military that ruled before her for half a century.

Now he calls Suu Kyi a "liar" and says Rohingya are suffering more than ever.

Hafiz was angered by the implication that Rohingya who were driven from their villages were themselves responsible. He said if that's true, Suu Kyi should give international journalists more access to their destroyed villages. If Rohingya are proven wrong, he says, "we will not mind if the world decides to kill us all by pushing us into the sea."
