Myanmar Rohingyas facing murderous ethnic cleansing

Over the last couple of weeks, the crisis in northern Rakhine State has become a humanitarian disaster with tens of thousands of Rohingya people fleeing the scorched earth policies of the Myanmar military. The Myanmar military has a long history of human rights abuses against ethnic minorities, but the latest offensive in Rakhine State is on an unprecedented scale. While supposedly a democracy, the Myanmar government, headed by Aung San Suu Kyi, has not changed its repressive policies against ethnic or religious minorities, or any opposition to its rule.
