Up to 30,000 Rohingya have been forced to flee their homes according to the United Nations, which is urging Bangladesh to open its border to them.
Meanwhile, the Bangladeshi Foreign Ministry said "thousands of distressed Myanmar citizens including women, children and elderly people continue to cross the border" even though Bangladeshi border guards have tried to prevent the influx.
The bloodshed is the most serious since hundreds were killed in communal clashes in Rakhine in 2012, exposing the lack of oversight of the military by Suu Kyi's seven-month-old administration.
Reports suggest security forces there are carrying out collective reprisal attacks following an assault on three border posts in early October, which killed nine police officers on the frontier. "Up to 50 women and girls of our village were tortured and raped".
The Rohingya are a stateless people who have suffered from persecution in Myanmar, where they are considered to be "Bengalis", or illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.
"We nabbed them after they illegally trespassed (into Bangladesh)".
"So it's up to the government of Bangladesh to put pressure on the government of Myanmar to return the situation to normal so that these Rohingyas who have arrived recently can go back in safety and with dignity".
The protest - due to start after Friday prayers - follows a demonstration in front of the presidential palace and embassy Thursday, where hundreds carried banners saying "Save the Rohingya Muslims", "Myanmar, Stop Muslim Cleansing!" and "Stop Genocide against Rohingya".
