Rohingya Crisis: US Holocaust Museum Says There Is Evidence of Genocide in Myanmar
Local Editor

The United States Holocaust Museum said there is "mounting evidence" of genocide in Myanmar, after a year-long investigation with Southeast Asia rights group Fortify Rights into atrocities against persecuted Rohingya Muslims.

Burma

The Wednesday report, based on more than 200 interviews with Rohingya and aid workers, said Myanmar's security forces carried out an "unprecedented, widespread and systematic" campaign of violence starting in October 2016 and continuing in August this year.

Close to one million Rohingya were pushed out of their homes in northern Rakhine state into neighboring Bangladesh following "coordinated" attacks on villages that included mass killings, gang-rape and arson, the report added.

"The crimes detailed in this report indicate a failure of the government of Myanmar as well as the international community to properly protect civilians from mass atrocities," it read.

Meanwhile, the United Nations called the violence a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing" but stopped short of the word "genocide", a legal definition that would require global leaders to take action under the Genocide Convention.

Genocide is defined as the intentional targeting of a community for destruction in whole or in part.

"The facts laid out in this report demonstrate that state security forces targeted the Rohingya group with several of the enumerated acts in the law of genocide," the report concluded.
