Myanmar’s Rohingyas are targets of ethnic cleansing: United States
The US Government said on Wednesday that abuses directed at the Rohingya ethnic group in Myanmar amount to ethnic cleansing. “After a careful and thorough analysis of available facts, it is clear that the situation in northern Rakhine state constitutes ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement, Efe news agency reported.
Despite expressing concern about the plight of the Rohingya, Washington has declined until now to ascribe their suffering to a deliberate campaign of ethnic cleansing.
