Over 410,00 Rohingya Muslims have fled the Myanmar military campaign

The US has sanctioned a Myanmar general accused of leading an ethnic cleansing campaign against the Rohingya people.

 Maung Maung Soe is among a host of world figures blacklisted by the US. He was removed from his post last month.

The crisis in northern Rakhine state has seen more than half a million Rohingyas flee for neighbouring Bangladesh since August 2017.
