United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet called on Monday for an international mechanism to collect evidence of crimes against Muslim Rohingya in Myanmar including murder and torture, with a view to future prosecution.

Bachelet, in her first speech to the Human Rights Council since taking office on Sept. 1, said: "This mechanism would also complement and support the preliminary examination of the ICC (International Criminal Court) Prosecutor.

"I urge the Council to pass a resolution and refer the matter to the General Assembly for its endorsement so that such a mechanism can be established."
