King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud ordered an additional $15 million for the Rohingya Muslims on Tuesday during a cabinet meeting that condemned the terrorist massacres.
The cabinet meeting discussed the brutal attacks and genocide committed against the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and the systematic destruction of many villages and homes of the Muslim minority group.
The cabinet meeting renewed calls made by Saudi Arabia on the international community to take urgent action to stop the violent acts and to give the Muslim minority in Myanmar their rights without discrimination or racial classification.
For generations, Rohingya Muslims have called Myanmar home. Now, in what appears to be a systematic purge, they are, quite literally, being wiped off the map.
After a series of attacks by Muslim militants last month, security forces and allied mobs retaliated by burning down thousands of homes in the enclaves of the predominantly Buddhist nation where the Rohingya live.
That has sent some 417,000 people fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh, according to UN estimates. There they have joined tens of thousands of others who have fled over the past year.
