ICC To Investigate How Myanmar Drove Out Nearly 1m Rohingya Muslims

International Criminal Court prosecutors are to investigate Myanmar's alleged crimes against humanity.

The reclusive country's Rohingya minority were systematically driven across the border to Bangladesh.

While Myanmar isn't an ICC member, it has jurisdiction to examine alleged crimes in Bangladesh.

More than 730,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to neighboring Bangladesh since a 2017 crackdown by Myanmar’s military.

The ICC estimates that between 600,000 and one million Rohingyas were forcibly displaced.

According to Reuters, UN investigators say the displacement was carried out with “genocidal intent”.
