    Norway's Nobel Institute says it has no intention of withdrawing its Peace Prize from Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi, after a damning UN report accused the country's top military generals of committing "genocide" against the Rohingya.

    More than 700,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar to Bangladesh since last August.
