Nobel chief Lars Heikensten says Aung San Suu Kyi's actions are "regrettable" but she will keep her peace prize.
The 47-member UN Human Rights Council has voted in favour of a resolution to set up a body to prepare evidence of international crimes and violations of international law committed in Myanmar since 2011.
The international community has often proven incapable of dealing with state led crimes against humanity, and Myanmar could prove another missed milestone.
A UN fact-finding mission has called for the prosecution of Myanmar officials to the full extent of the law for the first time, but unfortunately, the Rohingya are no closer to returning home.
A UN court heard the appeal of former Serb leader Radovan Karadzic who was found guilty of 10 charges, including genocide in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.
Karadzic was convicted two years ago for some of the worst war crimes committed as the former Yugoslavia broke apart in the 1990s, including the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in which around 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed.
Striking the Syrian regime for the chemical attack in Douma has come too little, too late, and is not likely to deter the Assad regime or Russia. Worse still, a Trump-Bolton White House inspires little confidence in any large scale US intervention.
Ratko Mladic, former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and ex-Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic are accused of forming a "joint criminal enterprise" to create a Greater Serbia by ridding the territory of Bosnian Muslims and non-Serbs.
The Associated Press reports that at least five mass graves have been found in the Myanmarese village of Gu Dar Pyin, as the UN special envoy on human rights in Myanmar says, "you can see it's a pattern" that has emerged with the Rohingya.
Mladic was the Bosnian Serb army commander in the 1992-1995 Bosnian war. The UN war crimes tribunal found him guilty of 10 of 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Mladic's lawyers say he will appeal the verdict and sentence.
The International Criminal Court will decide next week whether Ratko Mladic had ordered the killing of 8,000 unarmed Muslim men and boys after the capture of the town of Srebrenica in 1995.
International Criminal Court judges decline to refer South Africa to the UN Security Council for not arresting and handing Sudan's president over to the Hague for war crimes and genocide in Darfur province.
