Persecuting Burma’s minority

There are rapes – there are killings – there are human rights abuses on a daily basis: but says the UN, the persecution of Burma’s minority Rohingya people is being ignored. And it’s accused Aung San Suu Kyi’s government of a “counterproductive, even callous” approach. The scale of the crisis is sharply revealed by satellite imagery released by Human Rights Watch – that appears to show the burning of Rohingya villages in Rakhine state. We should warn you – there are distressing images in this report by our Asia correspondent Jonathan Miller.
