Myanmar's Suu Kyi denies genocide charges at Hague tribunal

Nobel laureate says her country can hold its own military accountable

YANGON -- Myanmar's State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi on Wednesday denied charges of genocide against her country's military, telling the International Court of Justice in The Hague that domestic authorities should be left to probe allegations of atrocities against the Muslim Rohingya minority. 

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate argued that the ICJ case brought by Gambia presents an "incomplete and misleading factual picture" of a "complicated" situation in the state of Rakhine.
