WASHINGTON - The White House said on Monday the violent displacement of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar showed the country's security forces were not protecting civilians.

"We call on Burmese security authorities to respect the rule of law, stop the violence, and end the displacement of civilians from all communities," the White House said in a statement. REUTERS
