Aung San Suu Kyi: How a peace icon ended up at a genocide trial - BBC News 4.5
Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi used to be seen as a symbol of human rights, and spent years under house arrest for promoting democracy.

Now, as Myanmar's civilian leader, she is at the International Court of Justice to defend her country against charges of genocide committed against the Rohingya Muslim minority. She will, in fact, be defending the very people who had previously imprisoned her - the military.

How did this peace icon wind up in the dock?

Video by Nick Beake and Tessa Wong.

She wasn't peace icon. BBC and CNN made her peace icon for the west. She was the Western puppet from the beginning.

Many thanks #Gambia standing strongly for the Rohingya. Many thanks also to #Canada and the #Netherlands for taking a deep look into the ICJ with Bangladesh. However, Bangladesh will have to play a pivotal role behind the scenes.
I hope that Bangladesh's longtime development partners will play a vital role in the security of their own business in solving the Rohingya problem.
As a conscious citizen, we should aware and wary about this problem.
Thanks for
