The Rohingya Crisis:
BACKGROUND Reports from Major Media & Organizations
(UPDATED INTERMITTENTLY)
(also see:
Current Affairs Summary )

KEY FACTS & NAMES:

The names Myanmar (official)
and Burma (traditional)
refer to the same country.

Rakhine State is Myanmar's coastal province where most of the violence has happened.
Rohingya Muslims were the majority there (particularly around the coastal district of Maungdaw Township), until this crisis.

Myamar's military, the notorious Tatmadaw, working with local Rakhines (a large Buddhist minority), attacked the Rohingya -- in 2012-2013, 2015, 2016-2017, and most brutally in 2017-2018 -- killing, torturing, wounding or raping tens of thousands of them -- ultimately driving most of the Rohingya out of Rakhine State into the neighboring country of Bangladesh.
