UN: Myanmar has not stopped its ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people

  • Myanmar has not stopped its ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people in Rakhine state, a United Nations human rights official said on Tuesday.
  • The UN envoy’s assessment of a continued “campaign of terror and forced starvation” comes six months after a military crackdown caused a mass exodus of Rohingya Muslims.
  • Some 700,000 people have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh since August. They have since told of murder, rape and arson by soldiers and vigilantes.
  • Myanmar’s military says it is fighting Rohingya militants and denies targeting civilians in Rakhine state. “The ethnic cleansing of Rohingya from Myanmar continues,” said the UN’s assistant secretary-general for human rights, Andrew Gilmour.
  • “The government of Myanmar is busy telling the world that it is ready to receive Rohingya returnees, while at the same time its forces are continuing to drive them into Bangladesh,” Mr Gilmour said.
