Sectarian violence against minority Rohingya Muslims in the predominantly Buddhist nation has killed hundreds in the past year, and uprooted about 140,000, in what some say presents a threat to Myanmar’s political reforms because it could encourage security forces to re-assert control.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said yesterday: “It is important for the Myanmar authorities to take necessary steps to address the legitimate grievances of minority communities, including the citizenship demands of the Muslim/Rohingya.”

He says failing to do so could risk “undermining reform process and triggering negative regional repercussions.”
