YANGON: Acute shortages of water and medical treatment in western Myanmar following attacks on humanitarian groups are the latest hardships imposed on Rohingya Muslims that “could amount to crimes against humanity,” a United Nations expert said on Monday. The UN human rights envoy to the country, Tomas Ojea Quintana, said a wave of attacks against aid organizations had choked off health, water and food supplies, increasing the vulnerability of the Rohingyas. “Recent developments in Rakhine State are the latest in a long history of discrimination and persecution against the Rohingya community which could amount to crimes against humanity,” he said in a statement.
