UN Gets Daily Reports of Killing, Rapes of Myanmar’s Rohingya Minority: [alwaght.com] Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said Friday the government, led by Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, has taken a "short-sighted, counterproductive, even callous" approach to the crisis.
In a statement, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said the policy could have grave long-term repercussions for the region.
At least 86 people have been killed in the latest wave of racial violence against the Rohingya Muslims, even though independent reports put the toll much higher.
The United Nations has estimated 27,000 members of the largely stateless Rohingya minority have fled across the border to Bangladesh.
