The United States has issued sanctions to Min Aung Hlaing and three more top military leaders over what it called “gross human rights violations” during the “ethnic cleansing” of the Rohingya Muslim minority. The leaders and their immediate families are barred from entry into the US, reports the New Mexico-based public broadcasting service KRWG.

“It is the military as an institution which needs to be targeted,” Mark Farmaner, director of Burma Campaign UK, tweeted. “The military will not change its behaviour because a small number of its members have reduced holiday options.”
