Rohingya Muslims – level 1

27-01-2020 07:00

Myanmar is a country in Asia. Many Rohingya Muslims live there. Their lives are very difficult. They must migrate a lot.

In 2017, there is strong military action against Rohingya Muslims. There is a lot of violence. Many people die. A lot of people run away to another country.

Some people believe that there is genocide of the Rohingyas. The Myanmar government asks a committee to find out what happens. The committee says that there is no genocide. However, there is serious crime.

A lot of people do not believe this. They say that the government wants to hide the truth.

Difficult words: migrate (to move from one place to another), genocide (the deaths of many people who belong to the same country or group), committee (a team of people who find out information about something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
