UN urges Myanmar to probe recent violence against Rohingyas

 

 

The UN has called on Myanmar to investigate new reports of human rights violations, including the killing of unarmed people and torching of rural settlements in the Muslim-majority Rakhine state.  

Myanmar deployed troops to Rakhine earlier this month following alleged attacks on police posts along the border with Bangladesh, which authorities blamed on Rohingya Muslims.

Officials say security forces have slain 30 attackers and arrested 53 suspects while hunting for at least 400 other suspected militants.

The identity of those militants has not been revealed yet because Rohingyas have no known militant group.
