Myanmar killings 'tip of iceberg'

Myanmar killings 'tip of iceberg'

Ten of the assailants were captured, but "it was found that there were no conditions to transfer the 10 Bengali terrorists to the police station and so it was chose to kill them", the military said, and vowed to take action against those involved in the killing.

Myanmar contends that the operations are legitimate counterinsurgency measures in response to attacks by Rohingya militants on border guard posts in August.

As per Anadolu news agency, the request comes after the military admitted to the killing of 10 Rohingyas in the war-ravaged Rakhine state.

"The US State Department, the UN, Amnesty International and Malaysia have all described actions taken against the Rohingya as "ethnic cleansing" as well as systematic crimes against humanity".

A statement from the office of the commander-in-chief on Wednesday said the military's investigation had found that members of the security forces had killed the 10. The use of the term "Bengali" is the commonly used term for Rohingya in Burma as it implies they are illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, despite them living in Burma for generations.

The Facebook statement goes on to say that the militant attacks had destroyed their military vehicles with explosives (despite having just noted that they were armed with melee weapons).

"It is true that both the villagers and security forces admitted they killed the 10 Bengali terrorists", the military statement said.

Trump Supports Sessions' Marijuana Decision, Breaking His Campaign Promise
To say this is an established industry with thousands of people and livelihoods depending on it would be an understatement. According to Brown Oregon's marijuana industry has created over 19,000 jobs since it was legalized in 2015.

"It was found that there were no conditions to transfer the 10 Bengali terrorists to the police station and so it was chose to kill them", the military said, referring to the findings of the investigating team.

The villagers assisted in the execution, according to the statement, because they wanted revenge on the Rohingya militants who had killed their family members in the past.

It said the 10 had been captured after security forces had come under attack from around 200 insurgents.

Action would also be taken against those who had failed to report the incident to their seniors, and those responsible for supervising the operation, it added.

The military denied all accusations of significant human rights abuses in a report released in November following an investigation.

Human rights organization Amnesty International claimed the admission exposes the extrajudicial killings of Rohingya, marking a "sharp departure from the army's policy of blanket denial of any wrongdoing".

The Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation said the admission substantiated allegations made by human rights groups and the United Nations of ethnic cleansing against "the most persecuted Rohingya people".
