人权观察报告:缅甸士兵轮奸罗兴亚妇女 HRW Report: Rohingya Women Gang Raped by Myanmar Soldiers








Burmese soldiers have gang raped Rohingya women in continued violence against the Muslim minority in the Rakhine state, according to a Human Rights Watch report.

Human Rights Watch cited first-hand interviews with 52 Rohingya women and girls who fled to Bangladesh and reported being raped by security forces in Myanmar. All but one of the interviewees was gang raped, HRW said.

HRW also spoke with multiple humanitarian organizations in Bangladesh who have reported "hundreds" of rape cases. Numbers of rape victims are likely much higher, as social stigma keeps many women silent. The numbers also cannot account for those who were killed after they were raped.

More than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims have left Myanmar's Rakhine State since August 25, after insurgents attacked security forces and prompted a brutal military crackdown.

Myanmar's government has repeatedly rejected claims that atrocities, including rape and extrajudicial killings, are occurring in northern Rakhine.

Myanmar does not recognize the Rohingya and denies them citizenship, referring to them as “Bengali.”

Though Aung San Suu Kyi has been criticized for sidestepping allegations of abuses, many Western governments have been reluctant to ostracize her during a fragile transition to democracy.
