This report is the culmination of nine months of intensive research and is  Amnesty’s most comprehensive output to date on the escalation in violence that forced more than 702,000 Rohingya women, men and children to flee to Bangladesh since 25 August 2017. Relying on more than 400 interviews in Myanmar and Bangladesh, as well as reams of corroborating evidence, the report documents in detail the patterns of violations carried out by Myanmar’s military and security forces, including killings, rape, torture, village burnings, and forced starvation. It makes detailed recommendations for measures to hold specific military and security units (as well as a small number of named officials) accountable for their role in crimes against humanity.
