The Leeds United off-season tour: Where' s Burma and is it secure to go there?
Lead United have said they will be playing two friendly games in the Southeast Asia country of Burma shortly after the end of the championship series. Where' s Burma? The release of detainees, such as the well-known Aung San Suu Kyi, and the improvement of external ties, despite some upheavals. The Leeds United will be playing their games in the big towns of Yangon and Mandalay, which are not on the offical shortlist of Burma's areas that should be avoided by overseas visitors.
It is recommended that the visitor checks in advanced whether their loan and debt card works in Burma and takes out full health insurement. So where can I go after soccer? The Yangon and Mandalay are historical towns, and there are also places of worship in Mon State, Pindaya, Bago and Hpa-An, scenic beauties such as Inle Lake, old towns Bagan and Mrauk-U and shores such as Nabule and Ngapali.
British carriers do not operate flights there, although you can operate direct flights from Japan, Qatar, Taiwan, South Korea, Germany and Singapore. The majority of our flights are provided by Thai carriers. Thai Airways returns from London Heathrow to Yangon, with a stop in Bangkok, available for 506, departure on 7 May and flight back on 12 May.
There are also flights with Singapore Airlines from Heathrow to Mandalay, with stopovers in Singapore and Yangon. What is the quality of the international game? They have been playing as Myanmar since 1989. Its home is the Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon with a seating for 50,000.
Myanmar's Rohingya crises have "marks of genocide," says the UN.
The Myanmar military's forcible actions against Rohingya Muslims carry "the characteristics of a genocide", which a UN High Representative on Foreign Affairs found in Myanmar on Thursday. Mr Lee went to visit refuges in Bangladesh and other areas of the area to talk about the Rohingya, a prosecuted Islamic majority in Myanmar. Since the end of August, when the Rohingya armed forces sent more than 750,000 people across the frontier to Bangladesh, the north of Rakhine has been swept almost empty.
Myanmar has been charged by the UN, the US and right-wing groups with conducting a regular ethnical clean-up operation against the stateless Moslem minorities, with MSF estimates that at least 6,700 Rohingya were murdered in the first week of terror. Although no exact details were given, Lee noted that the five found crowd tombs need to be examined, "and therefore we have requested a fact-finding operation and entry for foreign media" to the areas in North Rakhine State.
Myanmar's acts were "crimes against humanity" and "these are part of the characteristics of gender murder", Lee added. The Rakhine Government Commissioner for Borders in September turned down the report with the following words: "Where' s the evidence? The expropriated Rohingya who flee in masses while their towns in the state of Rakhine are burning behind them have caused worldwide uproar.
It is a document called "white lingerie" by groups of people concerned with respect to humanitarian issues that led the US State Department to call for a "credible" inquiry. Rohingya have been discriminated against for centuries in Buddhist Myanmar, where they are refused nationality and disparaged as Bengali migrants. The Rohingya murders were both followed by Walt Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo.
