UN: 'Completely unacceptable' — UN's Guterres calls for end to Rohingya persecution

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the persecution of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims and called for the “Myanmar authorities to suspend military action,” speaking to the press in New York City on Wednesday. Guterres called for Myanmar to “recognise the right of return to all those who had to leave”, calling the situation in Rakhine state “catastrophic.” “In Rakhine State... Еще there have been disturbing reports of attacks by security forces against civilians which are completely unacceptable,” Gueterres said. The UN has estimated that around 380,000 Rohingya have fled since August 25, many of them to Bangladesh, amid widespread reports of indiscriminate killings, arson, looting and rape by the Myanmar military. Myanmar's military claims to be pursuing Rohingya militants, after an attack that left 12 police officers dead on 25 August this year.
