国际人权组织人权观察的一份报告说,缅甸军队继续在若干邦对穆斯林少数族裔施暴,强奸罗兴亚族妇女。

人权观察的报告基于和52名罗兴亚族妇女和女孩的直接面谈。这些逃到孟加拉国的女性说他们在缅甸被政府军强奸。

人权观察说,这些被强奸的女性中除一人外,都是被轮奸。

人权观察在孟加拉国接触的多个人道救援组织说,有数以百计的强奸案。实际数字可能更高,因为社会压力让很多被强奸者保持沉默。统计数字也不包括被强奸后丧生的女性。

自从8月25号以来,60多万穆斯林逃离了缅甸若开邦。反政府分子攻击了政府保安部队后,缅甸军队随后进行了残酷报复。

缅甸政府一再否认在若开邦发生了杀戮、强奸和法外处决。联合国称若开邦发生的事情是典型的种族清洗。

缅甸不承认罗兴亚族,不准他们成为公民,称他们为孟加拉人。

缅甸实际上的领袖昂山素季被批评对侵犯人权现象视而不见。不过很多西方政府在缅甸向民主脆弱的过程中不愿意批评昂山素季。

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 firsthand 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.

p>The numbers also cannot account for those who were killed after they were raped.

Fifteen-year-old Hala Sadak from a village in the Maungdaw Township told HRW that soldiers had dragged her from her home, stripped her naked, and pushed her against a tree where she estimates as many as 10 men raped her from behind.

More than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims have left Myanmar’s Rakhine State since Aug. 25, after insurgents attacked security forces and prompted a brutal military crackdown that has been described as ethnic cleansing.

Myanmar’s government has repeatedly rejected claims that atrocities, including rape and extrajudicial killings, are occurring in northern Rakhine, the epicenter of the violence that the United Nations has called “textbook ethnic cleansing.”

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

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.
