U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that the plight of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar (Burma) was even worse than media portrayals.

More than 688,000 Muslim Rohingya and a few hundred Hindu Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since Aug. 25 last year after the Myanmar military cracked down in the northern part of Rakhine state, amid witness reports of killings, looting and rape, in response to militant attacks on security forces.
