Will the pope’s Myanmar visit bring relief to the Rohingya?

Clip: 11/28/2017 | 6m 54s

Without mentioning the Rohingya by name, Pope Francis spoke out in Myanmar of the need to respect all ethnic groups. It was unclear whether the pope pressed leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who has downplayed the severity of the attacks in the past, on the issue of persecution. William Brangham talks to Priscilla Clapp, former U.S. chief of mission in Myanmar, about the impact of the pope’s visit.
