Suu Kyi Should Have Resigned: UN Human Rights Chief

The outgoing UN Human Rights Chief says Myanmar's de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi should have resigned over the military's violent campaign against the Rohingya Muslim minority last year.

Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein told the BBC the Nobel peace prize winner should have considered returning to house arrest rather than excusing the military.

A new UN report says Myanmar's military should be investigated for genocide.

The report, published on Monday, blamed Ms Suu Kyi, a long-term leader of the pro-democracy movement, for failing to prevent the violence.

Myanmar has rejected the report as one-sided.
