The Myanmar military’s mass killings of the Rohingya minority amount to genocide, according to the law firm hired by the U.S. government to investigate the crisis, a finding that raises pressure on the U.S. to impose harsher sanctions against the country.

The Myanmar military’s mass killings of the Rohingya minority amount to genocide, according to the law firm hired by the U.S. government to investigate the crisis, a finding that raises pressure on the U.S. to impose harsher sanctions against the country.
The U.S. State Department earlier this year commissioned the Public International Law and Policy Group, a law firm, to send an investigative team to Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh to document Myanmar’s brutal military campaign last year.
Investigators interviewed 1,024 randomly selected Rohingya refugees, recording numerous instances of grave human-rights violations, including mass rapes, beheadings, and the burning and drowning of children, according to a September report by the law firm.
The State Department has so far classified the killings as ethnic cleansing and not as genocide, which under international law is a crime of its own.
