The Children of the Rohingya
News reports about the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar have appalled the world. Images of families stumbling across the border with Bangladesh, with tales of the military and Buddhist militias murdering men, raping women, and torching villages underlie allegations of ethnic cleansing and even genocide.
Once the darling of the world media for resisting the tyranny of Myanmar's military government, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Ky is now being shunned by world leaders. As her country's foreign minister and State Counsellor (or prime minister), she apparently has done little to halt atrocities and has failed to defend the rights of the Rohingya.
