(Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect) – Almost seven months after the military’s so-called “clearance operations” began, there is mounting evidence that a possible genocide has been committed against the Rohingya population in Rakhine State, Myanmar (Burma). Since 25 August last year the Rohingya have endured widespread and systematic attacks by Myanmar’s security forces, including mass killings, rape, torture, and forced displacement. At Gu Dar Pyin, Inn Din, Tula Toli and numerous other villages deliberate massacres have been perpetrated. Satellite evidence and eyewitness testimony reveal that more than 360 Rohingya villages have been burned down, forcing more than 688,000 Rohingya civilians to flee. An estimated 900,000 displaced Rohingya are now living as refugees in Bangladesh.
