Myanmar has not stopped its ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people in Rakhine state, a United Nations human rights official said on Tuesday.

The UN envoy’s assessment of a continued “campaign of terror and forced starvation” comes six months after a military crackdown caused a mass exodus of Rohingya Muslims.

Some 700,000 people have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh since August.

They have since told of murder, rape and arson by soldiers and vigilantes.

Myanmar’s military says it is fighting Rohingya militants and denies targeting civilians in Rakhine state.
