Myanmar Rohingya: Army 'must face genocide charges' BBC News
BBC News Published on Aug 28, 2018
UN human rights investigators say military leaders in Myanmar should be investigated for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity - and have called for them to be referred to the International Criminal Court. In an unprecedented move, the investigators named 6 top generals, including the Commander in Chief of the armed forces, and his deputy. UN investigators interviewed hundreds of victims and found evidence of murder, rape, and torture against the Rohingya predominately in Myanmar's Rakhine state. More than seven-hundred-thousand of them have fled into Bangladesh. But Myanmar's UN representative rejected the report, describing it as one-sided. Our Myanmar correspondent Nick Beake sent this report from Cox's Bazaar in Bangladesh.
