DHAKA (Reuters) – Actress Angelina Jolie has condemned sexual violence inflicted on Rohingya women in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. Ms Jolie, a special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, told a Bangladesh delegation in Vancouver she planned to visit the Rohingya victims of sexual violence. “Later she mentioned accordingly in her keynote speech about the sexual violence faced by almost each female Rohingya who fled to Bangladesh and condemned the armed conflict in Myanmar,” Bangladesh’s foreign ministry said in a statement yesterday.
