Myanmar is to face accusations of genocide at the UN highest court over its treatment of Rohingya  Muslims .

A 46-page application has been submitted to the international court of justice by the Gambia, alleging Myanmar   has carried out mass murder, rape and destruction of communities in Rakhine state .

If the ICJ takes up the case, it will be the first time the court in The Hague has investigated genocide claims on its own without relying on the findings of other tribunals, such as the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia  which it consulted for claims against Serbia and Croatia .

Under the rules of the ICJ, the application argues, member states can bring actions against other member states over disputes alleging breaches of international law   in this case the 1948 convention  on the prevention and punishment of the crime of genocide . .
