Pope starts Myanmar trip in shadow of Rohingya crisis 27.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Pope Francis landed in Yangon on Monday, the start of a delicate visit for the leader of the Roman Catholic church to majority-Buddhist Myanmar, which the US has accused of conducting "ethnic cleansing" against its Muslim Rohingya people. The pope will also visit Bangladesh, where more than 6,20,000 Rohingya have fled to escape what Amnesty International has dubbed "crimes against humanity". The Myanmar Army has denied the accusations of murder, rape, torture and forcible displacement. After leaving Rome, the Pope told reporters on his plane, "They say its too hot (in Myanmar). Im sorry, but lets hope it will at least be fruitful." Ethnic minorities in traditional dress welcomed Francis at Yangon airport, and children presented him with flowers as he stepped off his plane. He waved through an open window at dozens of children waving Vatican and Myanmar flags and T-shirts with the motto of the trip love and peace as he set off in a light blue Toyota car for St. Marys Cathedral in the heart of the ...

US lawmakers want sanctions on Myanmar military 4.11.2017 deccanherald.com
In one of the strongest efforts yet by Washington to pressure Myanmar to end its abusive treatment of the Rohingya Muslim community, US lawmakers on Friday proposed sanctions against the Southeast Asian nations military. House Republicans and Democrats introduced legislation that would curtail assistance or cooperation with Myanmars military and require the White House to identify senior military officials who would have US visa bans imposed on them. A bipartisan group in the Senate, including Senate Armed Services Committee chairman John McCain, introduced its bill on Thursday. It calls for renewal of import and trade restrictions on Myanmar, including re-imposing a ban on jade and rubies from the country. "Our legislation would hold accountable the senior military officials responsible for the slaughter and displacement of innocent men, women and children in Burma (Myanmars older name), and make clear that the United States will not stand for these atrocities," McCain said in a statement. The tough ...
