UPDATE: A big step forward on road to justice for Rohingya victims. The UN have agreed to set up a fact-finding mission in Burma. Now it is up to the goverment to cooperate.
Burma’s ethnic Rohingya Muslims are fleeing for their lives. Thousands of their homes were burned and many were killed and raped by Burmese soldiers. Burma’s military and civilian officials dismissed reports of these horrors as “fabricated news and rumors” and accused the Rohingya of burning their own homes. A UN flash report found it's very likely that crimes against humanity were committed in October and November.
Only an independent international investigation will be able to uncover the truth. We need your help to convince governments at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva to promptly establish such an inquiry.
