Al Jazeera: Azeem Ibrahim on Rohingya Genocide

There has been much attention on the Myanmar military’s campaign against the Rohingya Muslim minority. But over the past few weeks, the Myanmar army has stepped up attacks on ethnic armed groups such as the Arakan Army, who are mainly Buddhist fighters fighting for greater autonomy.

And why has Myanmar’s military rejected offers of a ceasefire?

Presenter: Bernard Smith Guests: Azeem Ibrahim – Director of Special Initiatives at the Newlines Institute and author of ‘The Rohingyas: Inside Myanmar’s Genocide’
