Rohingya Muslims Fleeing Burma (Interview with Mark Farmaner & Tun Khin)
The Report looks at the plight of the Rohingya fleeing persecution in Burma. Growing numbers of Rohingya Muslims, who have in effect been made stateless by the military government, are fleeing the country by sea hoping to make it to Thailand and Malaysia. This comes as US President Barack Obama used the 25th summit of the Association of South East Nations to urge the country to undertake further reform.
Mark Farmaner, director of Burma Campaign UK; and Tun Khin, president of the Burmese Rohingya Organisation in the UK joined with John Rees in the Islam Channel studio.
