US says Myanmar makes life for Rohingya 'a death sentence'

AP  |  United Nations 

US is denouncing for continuing to make life for Rohingya Muslims "a death sentence," citing the reporting of mass graves by and other organisations.

She started her speech to the today by recounting how a Rohingya refugee in Bangladesh, Noor Kadir, told AP how he survived an attack by soldiers and six days later found friends buried in mass graves.

Haley said regularly denies massacres and mass graves and claims to be fighting "terrorists." But, she added, "what Kadir found that day indicated that the military knew what it was doing was wrong and didn't want the world to know."

Haley also cited evidence of "another massacre and mass grave" discovered by two reporters, now imprisoned.
