Program Title: WINGS #25-17 Myanmar Rohingya - mlitary land grab
Description: The world calls on Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to denounce the slaughter forcing the Rohingya from Myanmar, but it gives a free ride to General Min Aung Hlaing, the country's globe-trotting army chief and actual ruling power, whose army is making a grab for the resources. Two media women who work with Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and Malaysia talk in depth about the attacks and the refugee issues.
Host(s): Jiselle Hanna
