The International Criminal Court has approved an investigation into alleged crimes against Rohingya Muslims by the government of Myanmar.

The development comes amid a slew of legal efforts to hold the government to account, including a lawsuit filed in Argentina – the first to name former democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

More than 730,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar since a 2017 crackdown by the country's military.
