Myanmar military leaders ‘guilty of crimes against humanity’


Yangon: Amnesty International has said top officials in Myanmar’s military should be tried for crimes against humanity.
The rights group released what it says is detailed evidence of the military’s crimes during the brutal crackdown on the Muslim Rohingya minority.
Amnesty says soldiers targeted villagers in a co-ordinated campaign of rape, torture and murder.
It also says the military had prepared its offensive before the attacks it has always said were the trigger.
There has been no immediate reaction from the Myanmar military but it has always denied accusations of ethnic cleansing and using excessive force.
