About our Rohingya Crisis news

Latest news on the Rohingya crisis, a humanitarian and human rights crisis that began in 2017 and continues to this day. The Rohingya are a Muslim minority group in Myanmar (formerly Burma) who have been subjected to decades of discrimination, persecution, and violence at the hands of the Myanmar government and Buddhist majority.

In August 2017, the Myanmar military launched a brutal crackdown on the Rohingya, claiming that they were responding to attacks by Rohingya militants. The military's actions included mass killings, rape, torture, and the burning of Rohingya villages. More than 700,000 Rohingya fled to neighbouring Bangladesh, where they live in overcrowded refugee camps.

The Myanmar government has been accused of committing genocide against the Rohingya, and the International Criminal Court is currently investigating the matter. The United Nations has also condemned the Myanmar government's treatment of the Rohingya, and has called for those responsible to be held accountable.

The Rohingya crisis has become a major international issue, with countries and organisations around the world providing aid to the Rohingya refugees and pressuring the Myanmar government to take action to protect the Rohingya and address the root causes of the crisis. However, progress has been slow and the Rohingya continue to face significant challenges, including a lack of access to basic services, limited opportunities for education and employment, and ongoing discrimination and violence.
