U.N. says Reuters report on Myanmar massacre demands ‘consideration, motion’

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – A Reuters investigation into the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and different stories of grave abuses “demand our attention and action,” a senior United Nations official informed the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday.

Deputy U.N. political affairs chief Miroslav Jenca referred to as for the discharge of two detained Reuters journalists, telling the 15-member council: “The ability to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information is a barometer for respect for human rights more broadly.”
