Cruel new details about ethnic cleansing in Myanmar Nobody talks about it
It is a U.N. account that UN agents themselves describe as repulsive and intolerable. Myanmar's police force murdered, violated and tortures several hundred Rohingya Muslims in a tidal wave of unparalleled force, according to a new UN Friday statement. Over the past few month, Myanmar's military personnel have intensified their effort to free the tribal group from the country's frontiers - in a nationwide territorial evacuation operation drive - to historical heights, both in scope and atrocity.
"The" evacuation operations" have probably claimed the lives of several hundred victims and caused an estimated 66,000 refugees to flee to Bangladesh and 22,000 of them to be driven internally," according to the new UN document. It was written by a UN research unit after interviews with Rohingya who had been driven to neighbouring Bangladesh by Myanmar's Myanmar police.
Myanmar's junior and six-year-old kids were killed with a knife by Myanmar's police. In spite of its cruelty, the Rohingya warfare is widespread in Myanmar. They claim to be struggling against a Rohingya insurrection that is restoring the civilian population.
Aung San Suu Kyi, one of Myanmar's most eminent politicians, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, is increasingly exposed to global critique because she is silent about the distress of Myanmar's Muslim people - although it is not clear how much influence she has on the war. It rejected UN inquiries to obtain full entry to the state of Rakhine, where most of the acts of terrorism are said to have taken place.
One of the best counselors in the state and a high-profile member of the Myanmar Islamic minorities, Ko Ni, was gunned down on Sunday after talking about horrors against the Rohingya.
