GENEVA (Reuters) – The United Nations has yet to decide if violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar constitutes genocide, Jyoti Sanghera, Asia Pacific chief at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said on Wednesday. “We are yet looking at the legal boundaries of that,” Sanghera said. “It could meet the boundaries, but we haven’t yet made that determination at OHCHR.”
