They had recently uncovered the first clear photographic proof of Myanmar military's atrocities against Rohingyas -- a mass killing in Inn Din. Shortly after this photo was taken, they were, according to a police captain's later testimony, "set up" by the government, and arrested for receiving "government secrets." They face several years in prison. The police captain who testified in their defense has been jailed, as well. A. Slodkowski 2017 Reuters

The Rohingya Crisis:
A Note About
SOURCES




Compiled by Richard Harris

Rohingya Crisis News is primarily a list of (and links to) major media articles about the Rohingya Crisis -- from leading English-language media outlets, official government agencies and international organizations.

Most of these articles are from the world's four major news services:

  • AP (Associated Press)
  • Reuters News Service
  • AFP (Agence France-Presse)
  • BBC (British Broadcasting Corp.)
  • These highly reputable news services are the backbone of global news, and the chief news source on international affairs for the world's leading English-language broadcasters and news publications. Their information (and often, word-for-word, their original articles) are published daily in the most reputable newspapers and magazines, and broadcast outlets, throughout the world -- from the New York Times and PBS TV on the left, to Fox News and U.S. News on the right.

    In most cases, the sources cited in Rohingya Crisis News are newspapers or broadcast outlets which use those news agencies' material -- particularly these leading global news sources (from a wide range of geographic and political perspectives):

    • Broadcasters:

      ...in the U.S.:

      • CBS News
      • NBC News
      • ABC News

      ...and abroad:

      • Toronto Globe & Mail (Canada)
      • ...and others
        ...particularly in the conflict region
        (which also often provide their own
        well-informed direct reporting,
        close to the scene):
        • Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)
        • Straits Times  (Singapore)
        • New Straits Times  (Malaysia)
        • The Star  (Malaysia)
        • Bangkok Post  (Thailand)
        • The Irrawaddy  (Myanmar)
        • Daily Star  (Bangladesh)
        • Dhaka Tribune  (Bangladesh)
        • The Times of India  (India)
        • The Hindu  (India)
        • The Hindustan Times  (India)
        • ...and others

    • Additionally, prominent international affairs organizations have been cited, including:
      • United Nations
      • U.S. State Dept.
      • Human Rights Watch
      • Amnesty International
      • Medicienes Sans Frontieres
        (Doctors Without Borders)
      • Council on Foreign Relations
      • ...and others

      NOTE that, in the interest of credibility, most cited sources are in nations with a free press. RCN generally (though not totally) refrains from citing media in nations where the press is censored, restricted, or government-controlled.

      Some articles, however, are occasionally cited from sources in authoritarian countries (or countries where press freedom is endangered) -- including, notably, in Myanmar, China, Turkey and Saudi Arabia -- because of the significance of that country to the Crisis, or as a significant political, military, economic or media power, with the means to influence circumstances in Myanmar and/or Bangladesh, directly or indirectly.

      However, articles from such sources are usually limited, and the source annotated with the appropriate cautionary note. Readers are advised to view such content with caution and/or skepticism.
