Myanmar comes to terms with UN report

Many inside Myanmar are struggling to digest a week of opprobrium heaped on their country by the UN over the treatment of the Rohingya, whose plight elicits little sympathy in the nation.

The Army was last year widely cheered for its defence of the country.

“We were happy to fight the military for democracy but we don’t want to fight them over Rakhine,” said shipowner Kyaw Kyaw, 47.

“I feel sad the world is looking down upon Myanmar people,” says traditional doctor Than Sein, 50, remembering how Buddhists and Muslims used to eat at each other’s houses.

The generals “should face the International Criminal Court (ICC) and make it clear if they did not do anything wrong,” said doctor Zune Ei.
