Rohingya refugees describe horror they left behind

Channel 4 News - Tue, 2017-09-19 19:46

Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who cancelled her visit to the UN General Assembly, has refused to blame the army for the conflict. But in her first countrywide address on the issue, the Nobel Peace laureate said she felt “deeply” for the suffering of “all people” in the conflict. Her statement seems to fly in the face of reports from the refugees who have spoken of burned villages, mass shootings and much worse.
