Rohingya - Collective Punishment or Proportionate Response?

On Friday, militants from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army attacked about 25 police posts in the Myanmar’s Rahkine state. As the government security’s took retaliatory action, thousands, both Muslim and Buddhist civilians from the northern part of Rakhine state fled the area towards the border with Bangladesh. It is believed that over 100 people have died since the Friday attack. Today we ask is the government of Aung San Suu Kyi has lost the initiative on the managing the political problem of the Rohingya minority, and if the international community will remain mute in the face of this recent upsurge of violence.
