Enough talk. Let’s have action on Rohingya massacres | Jan Figel and Benedict Rogers
Inquiries were held on the mass killings in Rakhine state and some visa bans imposed; here’s what must happen nextA   fter the genocides in Rwanda and Srebrenica, the words “never again” were uttered like a mantra by many in the international community. Yet a year ago in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, “never again” happened all over again.On 25 August 2017, the army unleashed a military offensive that forced more than 700,000 Rohingya to flee their villages into neighbouring Bangladesh. It is believed that thousands were killed. Human rights organisations have reported mass rape and eyewitness accounts describe babies and children snatched from their parents’ arms and thrown into burning homes or drowned in rivers. Families were burned alive in their homes, villagers lined up and shot and civilians targeted indiscriminately. Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein, the outgoing United Nations high commissioner for human rights, described what happened as “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”, and the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, Yanghee Lee, said she saw “the hallmarks of genocide”.

Kalashnikov reveals Tesla-rivalling electric car
Kalashnikov, the Russian manufacturing giant best known for its AK47 assault rifle, has unveiled the CV-1, a retro-styled 295bhp electric car that it claimed offers Tesla-rivalling performance. The prototype CV-1 was launched at the Army 2018 International Military Technical Forum in Kubinka, Russia. The car’s styling is based on the 1970s Izh 2125 Combi. The CV-1 uses modular batteries, with a total capacity of 90kWh, which Kalashnikov says are powered through a “revolutionary inverter” that measures 50x50x100cm and propel the car a total of 354 kilometres. While no specifics have been revealed about the CV-1’s motor, Kalashnikov cites an output of 295bhp, with a claimed 0-100kph time of around six seconds. According to the RIA-Novosti news agency's press office, a Kalashnikov spokesperson said, “This technology will let us stand in the ranks of global electric car products such as Tesla and be their competitors.” The original 2125 Kombi was produced by Izh, a subsidiary of Lada parent firm AvtoVaz, between 1973 and 1997. The hatchback, itself based on a Moskvitch 412, was initially powered by a 69bhp 1.5-litre engine. Best known for its guns, Kalashnikov produces a wide range of military and civilian weapons and other systems - these include several bikes and off-road vehicles. The firm recently unveiled a four-metre-tall, 4.5-tonne manned robot named Igorek. [...]

'I try to bury that pain': Rohingya refugees on the trauma they carry
Award-winning photographer Robin Hammond says survivors of ethnic cleansing in Myanmar carry deep psychological scarsOne of life’s greatest misconceptions is that time is a healer. A year ago, the “ethnic cleansing” perpetrated by the Myanmar military against the Rohingya sparked a massive refugee crisis. Nearly a million Rohingya – those who escaped the flames and executions – are now living in camps in Bangladesh. Many of them were raped, most saw loved ones killed, thousands arrived wounded. This monsoon-soaked corner of Bangladesh is among the most densely populated with people affected by trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here, time has not healed.I do not feel peaceful Continue reading... [...]
