Jolie Urges Myanmar to End Violence against Rohingya Muslims

Jolie Urges Myanmar to End Violence against Rohingya Muslims

Tuesday, 05 February 2019 10:38 AM

COX'S BAZAR,Bangladesh (AP) — Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has urged Myanmar to show a genuine commitment to ending violence and displacement in its Rakhine state, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled to neighboring Bangladesh for safety.

Jolie, a special envoy for the U.N. human rights agency, made the comments Tuesday as she visited sprawling camps in Bangladesh that are home to 1 million Rohingya refugees. More than 700,000 have arrived since August 2017, when Myanmar's army led a violent crackdown following attacks on security posts by a Rohingya insurgent group.

Jolie is visiting for three days before launching a global appeal for $920 million, chiefly to support the refugees' needs.
