Rohingya Tell Horror Stories of Rape, Killings by Burmese Army
Description: (New York, December 21, 2016) –The Burmese military has conducted a campaign of arson, killing and rape against ethnic Rohingya that has threatened the lives of thousands more. Since the October 9, 2016 attacks by Rohingya militants on government border guard posts in northern Rakhine State, Burmese security forces in operations against suspected militants have inflicted horrific abuses on the Rohingya population, as reported by refugees who fled the recent violence. Burma’s failure to end military abuses against Rohingya and hold those responsible to account demands an independent inquiry with United Nations participation, Human Rights Watch said.

Description: In May 2015 more than 1,800 people from Myanmar and Bangladesh arrived by boat in Aceh, Indonesia. Many among the group were Rohingya men, women and children from Myanmar. They claimed to have been at sea for months and were abandoned by the boats’ crews some days/ weeks before their boats landed in Aceh.
