Hunt says pressed Suu Kyi on 'justice and accountability' for Rohingya


NAYPYITAW (Reuters) - Myanmar must ensure there is "no hiding place" for those responsible for crimes against its Rohingya minority if it is to avoid a lasting stain on the country's reputation, Britain's Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Thursday.

Hunt told Reuters he pressed Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi on the importance of holding the armed forces accountable for any atrocities, adding that if that did not happen within the country other options should be considered, including referral to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
