The Security Council envoys, who will travel to Myanmar Monday and meet with its de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, also visited a dry and dusty Kutupalong refugee camp that housed many of the nearly 700,000 Rohingya who fled Myanmar's Rakhine state.The refugee crisis exploded about eight months ago when the Myanmar military launched a crackdown over Rohingya insurgent attacks on security posts.The U.S., Britain, the U.N. and others described the operation as ethnic cleansing of the minority mainly Muslim Rohingya, a charge Myanmar denies.Several female refugees who met with council envoys accused Myanmar troops of gang-raping them, attacking their young children and killing their husbands.
