Testimony of destruction

The UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs has viewed dozens of burned and destroyed villages in northern Rakhine during his recent tour by air, and called on Myanmar to investigate allegations of human rights abuses by security forces. It was the first visit by a top UN official from its New York headquarters since the latest violence began in Rakhine in late August, forcing nearly 6,00,000 Rohingya to cross into Bangladesh in one of the worst and fastest growing humanitarian crisis in history.
