Saudi Arabia donates USD 50 mln to Rohingya Muslims

MAKKAH, Aug 11 (KUNA) -- The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud ordered Saturday sending USD 50 million in humanitarian aid to the oppressed Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar.
A press statement pointed out that King Abdullah ordered the aid to alleviate the suffering of Rohingya Muslims who are subjected to systematic human rights abuses, ethnic cleansing, forced deportation, mass rape and killing from extremist Buddhist groups tolerated by the government.
The move comes a day after Myanmar government's acceptance to allow access to humanitarian aid to the oppressed Muslim minority.(end) yms.ibi KUNA 111954 Aug 12NNNN
