UN envoy says Myanmar failed to protect him in convoy attack

YANGON (AFP) – The UN’s rights envoy on Myanmar on Wednesday slammed the nation’s government for failing to protect him when his convoy came under attack in a town reeling from religious unrest.

“The state has to protect me as a responsibility… This did not happen. The state failed to protect me,” Tomas Ojea Quintan, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights, told reporters at the end of his 10 day visit to the country.
