Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi Tuesday condemned human rights violations in Rakhine state and said violators would be punished, but she did not address U.N. accusations of an ethnic cleansing campaign by the military.Western diplomats and aid officials, hoping for an unequivocal condemnation of violence and hate speech, welcomed the tone of Suu Kyi's message, but some doubted if she had done enough to deflect global criticism.The attacks on Rohingya villages in the last month appear to many to have been a systematic effort to drive the Rohingya Muslims out. The United States urged Myanmar Monday to end military operations, grant humanitarian access, and commit to aiding the safe return of civilians to their homes.In Geneva, the head of a United Nations investigation into the violence said his team had heard testimony that suggested Myanmar's security forces may be committing rights violations.
