HumanRightsWatch urges Myanmar , Bangladesh to stop Rohingya repatriation on Aug 22

Rohingya Muslims have long been denied citizenship and freedom of movement in Myanmar, and starting in 2017, more than 740,000 were expelled by the military in a campaign that UN investigators have said was genocidal.
