Security forces likely committed war crimes in Rohingya

NAYPYITAW (AP) — An independent commission established by Myanmar’s government has concluded there are reasons to believe that security forces committed war crimes in counter-insurgency operations that led more than 700,000 Rohingya to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh. However, the commission, headed by a Philippine diplomat, said in a report given on Monday to Myanmar President Win Myint that there is no evidence supporting charges that genocide was planned or carried out against the Rohingya.  More details in Thursday’s Borneo Bulletin
