Violence against Rohingya 'without excuse', Pence tells Suu Kyi

The violence which drove 700,000 Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar into Bangladesh was "without excuse", US Vice President Mike Pence told Aung San Suu Kyi in stinging comments on a summit sidelines Wednesday.

 

Condemning the "violence and persecution" against the minority, he told Myanmar's civilian leader Suu Kyi that he was "anxious to hear about the progress" being made to hold the perpetrators accountable.
