Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) announced the committee will convene a hearing on Wednesday, September 26, entitled “Genocide Against the Burmese Rohingya.” The hearing will begin at 10 a.m.

Chairman Royce on the hearing: “Evidence of Burma’s genocide against the Rohingya continues to grow. Thousands of men, women and children have been slaughtered, entire villages have been burned and bulldozed, and more than 700,000 have been forced to flee their homes. The administration has tools at hand to hold Burmese officials accountable. This hearing is an opportunity for members to examine the latest developments in this crisis and review the action that’s needed to help stop the violence.”
