'The Burmese military is still pushing the Rohingya minority out of their homes through forced starvation, the fear of abduction, and the looting of their property, according to new evidence from Amnesty International.
The tactics of ethnic cleansing are still widespread, despite Burma signing a recent repatriation deal with Bangladesh, where close to 700,000 Rohingya refugees have sheltered since the start of a brutal military crackdown in August, the human rights group said.
Aid agencies documented thousands of refugees crossing over the border during December and January, squeezing into the already overcrowded, dusty Kutupalong camp near Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar.
Interviews conducted by Amnesty with new arrivals from Buthidaung township revealed that most had fled their homes out of hunger, after being denied access to their rice fields and markets.
As one of the poorest states in Burma, Rakhine was already suffering from high malnutrition rates even before the military launched a savage campaign of arson, rape and killing.'
