Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims have been described as the most persecuted minority on Earth. For years, Myanmar has not recognised them as citizens. Now the army is burning their villages, killing them and driving the survivors out of the country. Myanmar’s leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, ignores their plight. Does she deserve to keep her Nobel peace prize?
Since August 25th, 150,000 Rohingya refugees have fled their homes in Myanmar for the safety of Bangladesh, to avoid being slaughtered by their own country's soldiers. Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's leader, doesn't even acknowledge their existence.
