Kofi Annan to probe reports of Rohingya abuse in Rakhine

 

 

Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan was scheduled to arrive in the Rakhine state of Myanmar on Tuesday to examine reports of abuse against the Rohingya Muslim minority.

This will be Annan's second visit to the region since the government appointed him head of an advisory commission to propose solutions to the sectarian conflict between the Buddhist majority and Rohingyas, EFE news reported.

At least 30,000 civilians have been displaced due to the violence in Maungdaw, where activists and human rights groups accuse the Myanmar military of carrying out killings, rapes, looting and burning over a thousand houses in Rohingya villages.
