Demonstrators support Rohingya resettlement

Protesters stood in front of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ offices in Rangoon’s Sanchaung township to express their support for President Thein Sein’s plan to resettle the Rohingya minority out of Burma.

Burma’s president had told the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) chief Antonio Guterres that the government was not prepared to recognise the Rohingya and asked for the body’s assistance in placing them in refugee camps and later resettle them elsewhere.

The plan was promptly rejected by the UNHCR.
