The Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar, which Marzuki Darusman heads, said in its final report last month that Myanmar should be held responsible in international legal forums for alleged genocide against the Rohingya.
"Myanmar continues to harbour genocidal intent," UN investigators said in their report wrapping up two years of documentation of human rights violations by Myanmar security forces.

More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Rakhine for neighbouring Bangladesh; many refuse to go back as they fear more violence with "genocidal intent" by the military.

Authorities orders all mobile phone operators to suspend internet data in nine townships across Rakhine and neighbouring Chin State, citing "use of internet activities to coordinate illegal activities."
