The international community yesterday pledged $597 million as humanitarian assistance to the Rohingyas in the region, while calling for Myanmar to hold accountable the human rights violators and to create conditions for Rohingya repatriation.

The major pledges came from the US, EU and UK, which announced $200 million, 96 million Euro and 37 million pounds respectively.

The announcement came at a donors conference for the Rohingyas co-hosted by the US, UK, EU and UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) at a time when less than 50 percent of the required $1 billion has been received for the Rohingyas in Bangladesh this year.
