Myanmar army accused of gang-raping Rohingya women

The Myanmar government has banned the UN's top human rights investigator from entering Rakhine State to document crimes and seeking justice through the international system may be impossible.

Myanmar military has been accused of using gang rape as part of an ethnic cleansing campaign against the Rohingya.

Rights groups say the attacks occurred during a recent crackdown in Rakhine State in which 7,000 people are thought to have been killed.
