Myanmar must protect minority to end Bay of Bengal migration, UN says

The deadly pattern of migration by sea across the Bay of Bengal will continue unless Myanmar ends discrimination against its Rohingya Muslim minority, the UN human rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in a statement on Friday.

quotUntil the Myanmar government addresses the institutional discrimination against the Rohingya population, including equal access to citizenship, this precarious migration will continue,quot Zeid said in a statement.
