UN probe would inflame tensions: Suu Kyi

A United Nations probe into alleged human rights abuses by Myanmar's military against the minority Rohingya people last year would inflame ethnic tensions, Aung San Suu Kyi said Monday, according to a Reuters report.
Last month, the U.N. appointed experts to lead a fact-finding mission to investigate allegations of killings, rape and torture by security forces against the Rohingya, a Muslim minority who have faced discrimination in the predominantly Buddhist country. Myanmar rejected the mission.
Suu Kyi has said she would only accept recommendations from a separate advisory commission led by former U.N. chief Kofi Annan.
