Ethnic Cleansing in Myanmar

In September 2017, the UN described a security operation in Myanmar that targeted Rohingya Muslims as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” When violence erupted in Rakhine state in August 2017, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya fled crimes against humanity to neighboring Bangladesh. Amnesty said the country’s army committed “extensive violations” of international humanitarian law and authorities were continuing to restrict humanitarian access in the Asian country.
