How can the world force Rohingyas to return: UK MP gives eye witness account

London: A British MP and former humanitarian aid doctor Rosena Allin-Khan has been to meet face-to-face some of the Rohingya who have been forced to flee.

After taking personal account of the intolerable suffering the Rohingya have faced, she said the world cannot turn its back and force the Rohingya to return to Myanmar without protection.

Western politicians have also travelled to Myanmar and Bangladesh to witness the crisis in recent months. In September, the British foreign office minister Mark Field travelled to Rakhine state, the centre of the violence. Members of the US senate also travelled there in November.
