Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi left for The Hague today (Sunday) to face charges of genocide of Rohingya Muslim minority in the International Court of Justice.

Gambia, a tiny, mainly Muslim West African country had filed a lawsuit in  the U.N’s top court  accusing Buddhist-majority country of genocide, the most serious international crime, against its Rohingya Muslim minority.

More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar in 2017 after a brutal military-led crackdown which the U.N has said was executed with “genocidal intent” and included mass killings and rape.
