Norway's Nobel Institute said Wednesday it had no intention of withdrawing its Peace Prize from Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi after a damning U.N. report termed the treatment of the Rohingya people as "genocide".As the Rohingya crisis has deepened in the past year with the flight of hundreds of thousands to neighboring Bangladesh, Suu Kyi has come under increasing international pressure to speak out about their plight.So far however she has said very little and steadfastly avoided any critical comment of Myanmar's military.The Myanmar government on Wednesday bluntly rejected the U.N.'s findings.
