UNHRC session on Rohingya on Dec 5

The UN Human Rights Council is expected to hold a special session on killings, rapes and other crimes committed against Rohingyas in Myanmar that have driven more than 600,000 into Bangladesh since August, UN sources said yesterday.

"There will be a special session on December 5," a senior United Nations source told Reuters.

Council spokesman Rolando Gomez could not confirm the date but said: "There are moves to convene a special session to address the human rights situation in the country."

At least 16 of the 47 member states must request holding a special session of the Council, which are rare. Bangladesh and Muslim-majority countries were expected to back the call.
