insurgent(名詞)起義者;叛亂者

The Rohingya refugee crisis began this August when several Myanmar police posts in Northern Rakhine state were attacked by Rohingya insurgents. Afterwards, security forces of Myanmar reacted the incidents with brutal “clearance operations,” killing hundreds of people and left hundreds of Rohingya villages burned to the ground. The de facto head of Myanmar’s civilian government, Suu Kyi, who is also the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner, has long been blamed by the international community for showing reluctance to defend the Rohingya.

羅興亞難民危機緣起於8月25日,一個名為羅興亞拯救軍的組織突然對三十個緬甸警察哨站發動攻擊。緬甸國防軍遂對此事件進行慘忍的清剿攻擊,造成一場人道危機。翁山蘇姬,當前緬甸的實質領袖,也是1991年諾貝爾和平獎得主,因未能對羅興亞人的處境有所作為,而引來國際社會責難。

inhumane(形容詞)不人道的

However, Suu Kyi is limited in her control of the country by a constitution written by the military junta that ruled Myanmar for decades. The military is in charge of the operations in northern Rakhine, and ending them is not up to Suu Kyi. This Monday, Suu Kyi attended the ASEAN summit in Manila. It is still unclear whether the crisis will be on ASEAN’s official agenda, but one thing is for sure, Suu Kyi will be under fire for her inaction to the inhumane oppression.

然而,依照緬甸政府體制,翁山蘇姬權力無法凌駕軍方之上。軍方才是在若開邦清剿行動的主要指使者,翁山蘇姬政府並無力阻止這場危機。這周一開始,翁山蘇姬在馬尼拉參加舉行的東協高峰會。目前尚未確認此事會被列入議程討論,但可以確定的是,她未對不人道壓迫有所行動,定會受到嚴厲批評。
