The Rohingya refugees who have been living in camps in Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh for the past few years urged the International Court of Justice to give Myanmar action. Myanmar is accused of being responsible for the "genocide" of its Spiritual citizens.

Mohammed Zobayer, 19, through Reuters news agency said, "We witnessed rape, torture and murder."

More than 730,000 Rohingya Muslim minority residents fled when the Myanmar military launched a military operation in 2017.

Myanmar has always denied the accusations of genocide on the grounds that the military action was a response to an attack carried out by the Rohingya insurgents themselves.

How unfortunate the fate of Rohingya residents, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya residents now live in refugee camps in southern Bangladesh.

Myanmar was finally sued in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague - the trial which began on Tuesday (10 Dec) to Thursday (12 Dec) - by the small West African nation of Gambia.

Myanmar is accused of genocide against Rohingya Muslims.

During the trial in the Netherlands, Aung San Suu Kyi will lead Myanmar's own lawyer team.

Claims filed at ICJ usually decide disputes between countries.

Last year, the United Nations issued a report condemning the violence in Myanmar, saying military leaders should be tried related to genocide.
