Tillerson calls for an end to 'horrors' in Myanmar

How did Rohingya Muslims reach India

The Rohingya, described by the United Nations as the world's most persecuted people, have faced heightened fears of attack since dozens were killed in communal violence in 2012.

Myanmar's state counsellor and de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize-winner, has been sharply criticized for turning a blind eye to ethnic violence.

(CNN) - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for an end to the "horrors" in Myanmar's Rakhine state Thursday, saying the violence represents a "defining moment" for the country's new civilian government. It's been characterised by many as ethnic cleansing. "That must stop", Tillerson said.

'That time I had dental anesthesia'
It's only been two weeks since Garner joined Instagram , and this video-her seventh post-has been viewed more than 22,000 times. But no one seems to have been as affected by exactly like Jennifer Garner was.

During that meeting, Murphy told the ambassador that Myanmar should publicly acknowledge that Rohingya groups in particular have fled across the border into Bangladesh, a senior State Department official familiar with the conversation told CNN, and that those refugees should now be allowed to return home. It can not escape notice that there is a direct correlation between the spike in the intensity of state-perpetrated violence on the Rohingyas and the lifting of U.S. sanctions on Myanmar. Opprobrium has been heaped on Aung San Suu Kyi, who was once a darling of the rights community but now faces accusations of turning a blind eye to - and even abetting - a humanitarian catastrophe by Western powers. We hope the world would speak loudly from the forum of UN Security Council as well despite concerns that after India, China too has come to the rescue of Myanmar, which stood isolated globally because of its unending genocide of Rohingyas, forcing 370,000 of them to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh.

Activists say more than 100 villagers, women and children among them, have been killed by security forces. Since the Rohingya are considered to be illegal Bengali immigrants and were denied recognition as a religion by the government of Myanmar, the dominant group, the Rakhine, rejects the label "Rohingya" and have started to persecute the Rohingya.
