Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Tuesday arrived at the International Court of Justice in The Hague for a hearing on allegations that the Burmese army carried out genocide against the mainly Muslim Rohingya minority in the Buddhist-majority Southeast Asian nation.

The case was brought to the tribunal, also known as the World Court, by The Gambia, a tiny, predominantly Muslim nation in West Africa with the backing of all 57 members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.
