ICRC chief: 'Long way to go' until Rohingya refugees can return to Myanmar

Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), spoke to FRANCE 24 from Geneva following a visit to Myanmar and Bangladesh. Maurer described the situation in Myanmar’s Rakhine state as "highly fragile".
