CWN Editor's Note: In the most prominent front-page coverage in its August 2 edition, the Vatican newspaper recalled the fifth anniversary of the Myanmar military’s brutal campaign against the Rohingya people.

“At the time, hundreds of villages were destroyed and tens of thousands died after the attacks carried out by the government’s military, while about 738,000 displaced people fled to Bangladesh,” Isabella Pero reported. “Another 140,000 found shelter in the Burmese refugee camps.”

Citing data from Doctors Without Border on the continuing suffering of Rohingya refugees, the newspaper noted that “five years later, the situation cannot be said to have improved.”
