This week on VICE on HBO, the team heads to Myanmar to learn the fate of Rohingya Muslims who've fled across the border, then we join the U.N.'s most dangerous peacekeeping mission, in Mali.
Massacre in Myanmar
Over half a million Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have fled brutal ethnic violence carried out by their government. While unprecedented numbers of refugees have found safety across the border in Bangladesh, their fates are uncertain. The international community has been reluctant to take action against Myanmar, and plans are underway to return those who escaped. Gianna Toboni travels to the Myanmar-Bangladesh border to see what the future holds for the world’s most persecuted minority.
The Blue Helmets
“The Blue Helmets” offers an exclusive look inside the U.N.'s most dangerous active peacekeeping operation in the African country of Mali. VICE's Aris Roussinos joins U.N. peacekeepers on their mission across the lawless Sahara desert as VICE founder Suroosh Alvi speaks with the secretary-general of the United Nations, António Guterres, about what the future of peace looks like in today's world.
See it Friday at 7:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. on HBO.
