Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The Islamic Unity Student Association (HIMA PERSIS) staged a protest outside the Myanmar embassy this afternoon.

The protesters condemned the violence against Rohingya people in Myanmar. They called the violence as genocide.

They demanded President Joko Widodo to expel the Myanmar ambassador. They also urged Jokowi to cut diplomatic relations with the country.

"The international community must give harsh sanction," said one protester.

Myanmar Army razed Rohingya villages in Rakhine province in recent weeks. Myanmar officials claimed Rohignya militants attacked government buildings.
