UN cannot rule out 'elements of genocide' in Burma
The United Nations' top human rights official said on Tuesday Rohingyas were continuing to flee northern Rakhine state in Myanmar, where he said the crime of genocide by state forces could not be ruled out against the Muslim minority, AzVision.az reports citing the Independent.
Prosecutions for the violence and rapes against Rohingya "appear extremely rare", Zeid said. "Can anyone - can anyone - rule out that elements of genocide may be present?" he told the 47-member state forum in Geneva.
