The United States sent sanctions against Myanmar military officers for killing Rohing

Washington: The United States has imposed sanctions against Myanmar’s military chief and three more for Rohingya’s killings and human rights violations.
Their entry into America is forbidden. Officials are Supreme Commander Min Aung Hlaing, Deputy Commander Soe Win, Brigadier General Than Oo, and Brig-Gen Aung Aung. Members of their immediate families are also prohibited from entering the United States.
Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State, said: “With this announcement, the United States is the first government to publicly take action against the highest leadership of the Burmese army.”
“We have determined these individuals on the basis of reliable information on the involvement of these commanders in gross violations of human rights,” Pompeo said.
According to reports, brutal murders in Inn Din in the state of Rakhine in September 2017 were mass executions of Rohingya by the Myanmar army. Two scribes were convicted for reporting on the ethnic cleansing of Muslims from Rohingya.
