Will Aung San Suu Kyi step up to halt Rohingya crisis? | Myanmar

Thursday

Global pressure is mounting on Myanmar’s army and the country’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi to end the killing and displacement of Rohingya Muslims.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called the killings “catastrophic” and “completely unacceptable”. 

He says the Myanmar military should suspend its operation in the western Rakhine state and allow Rohingya to return to their villages.

At least 400,000 people have fled to Bangladesh since the violence escalated late last month.

As more Rohingya flee to Bangladesh, what will it take to stop this violence?
