Protest in Myanmar’s Rakhine State Against Rohingya Return


Buddhists monks lead protesters in Myanmar's troubled Rakhine state during a demonstration against the planned repatriation of Rohingya Muslims from Bangladesh. Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh said Myanmar's armed forces raped women, murdered their relatives and burned down their houses in a bid to drive them out of the country for good. Myanmar denies almost all claims of atrocities and says it was defending itself against Rohingya militants.
