In just over two weeks, more than 300,000 Rohingya refugees have fled from Myanmar into neighboring Bangladesh, due to state violence against the Muslim minority group. The Myanmar military says the violence is only a response to attacks by a militant group associated with the Rohingya, and that innocent civilians haven’t been targeted. But the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said this week that the situation looks like a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” We’ll bring you the latest on the situation in Myanmar and discuss the future of the Rohingya, a stateless group that has faced decades of abuse and discrimination.
