Among nearly two dozen recommendations, the human rights group called for the UN Security Council to impose a comprehensive arms embargo on Myanmar and financial sanctions against senior officials responsible for violations that Amnesty says meet the criteria for crimes against humanity.

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) on Tuesday said almost 300 Rohingya villages have been torched in Myanmar since the current spate of violence began in late August.

Tillerson said it is a test of the "power-sharing government" between civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the military.

His family ran out of food and all the local markets had been shut since the Myanmar army and Rakhine Buddhist militia targeted his village in attacks, he said.

"Although Myanmar is an ASEAN member, we want to make it clear that the Rohingya issue transcends geographical borders", he said, adding, "We have no wish to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, but it should be understood that the Rohingya issue is a regional problem".

Between 10,000 and 15,000 Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh over the past 48 hours, taking the total Rohingya population to have fled Myanmar to 5,82,000, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) announced on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson condemned Wednesday reported atrocities committed against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Bangladesh and humanitarian agencies have been struggling to accommodate and provide basic services for the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who fled northern Rakhine during a military crackdown following deadly attacks on 30 police posts and an army facility on August 25. Satellite images have also detected at least 156 large fires in Rohingya regions since August 25, which "strongly indicates" they were intentional.

Bangladesh's social services department said 13,751 children without a parent or parents were identified in a survey of the crowded refugee camps along its border, where charities warn that a humanitarian crisis is unfolding.

He said satellite imagery, corroborated by witness accounts, show that Rohingya homes and mosques have been burned entirely in villages, while non-Rohingya areas just one or two hundred metres away were untouched.

Amnesty said it had documented the killings of a dozen people in Chein Kar Li, Koe Tan Kauk and Chut Pyin villages in Rathedaung Township, in Inn Din, Min Gyi and in Maungdaw Township.
