14 March 2018

Rohingya refugees who have fled into Bangladesh from Myanmar have suffered an unprecedented “level of barbarity”, according to the head of the UN’s Office on Genocide Prevention.

Adama Dieng spoke to Reem Abaza, at the end of a nearly week-long visit to meet some of the 600,000-plus refugees forced to flee their homes in Rakhine State, and elsewhere, because of systematic violence orchestrated by the authorities in Myanmar.
