Deputy assistant to U.S. President Donald Trump visits Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh

Nearly 700,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar for Bangladesh after insurgent attacks on Aug. 25 sparked a military crackdown that the United Nations and the United States have said amounted to ethnic cleansing, with reports of arson attacks, murder and rape.

Repatriation was due to begin in January under an agreement signed by Myanmar and Bangladesh. But the plan has stalled due to safety and logistical concerns, and meanwhile Rohingya continue to flee across the border.

The United States imposed sanctions on 13 “serious human rights abusers and corrupt actors” in December including Myanmar general Maung Maung Soe, who oversaw the crackdown against the Rohingya.
