South Africa's Tutu Pleads for Protection of Muslims in Myanmar

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has said that it is not fitting for a "symbol of righteousness" like his "dear sister" and de facto leader of Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi to remain silent on the ethnic cleansing of Muslims in the troubled state of Rakhine. About 125,000 people have fled to Bangladesh after military operations were launched to find militants who allegedly raided police border posts.
