[Editorial] Last days of the Rohingya of Rakhine

While the UN Security Council issued a statement last week calling to end the violence against the Rohingya Muslim population of Northern Rakhine State, Myanmar, military forces were burning more villages. In 3 weeks, over 400 000 people (more than half of them children and 400 newborn babies) have made the perilous boat voyage to Bangladesh, fleeing a violent campaign of scorched homes, killings, rapes, and landmine injuries. Although Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi finally broke her silence this week condemning all human rights violations in Rakhine, she fell short of criticising the notorious Tatmadaw national army, which has a gruesome record of human rights abuses and of acting in flagrant disregard for international law.
