UN special rapporteur on Myanmar Yanghee Lee (R) meets a Buddhist monk at a monastery in Rakhine State's capital Sittwe on January 16, 2017.

The UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Myanmar on Friday wrapped up a 12-day trip to the country.

Yanghee Lee's visit included several days in Rakhine State where security forces have been accused of widespread abuse against Rohingya Muslims.

The UN envoy also met Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner who has faced criticism over her handling of the issue.
