Reuters Publishes Story Of Myanmar Massacre That Got 2 Journalists Arrested

Now the world can see the results of their work in "Massacre in Myanmar", the story published by Reuters overnight.

Reports from Doctors Without Borders suggest that the Rakhine State, situated on the western coast of Myanmar, was where the conflict that led to the Myanmar massacre originally erupted.

Myanmar's Catholic cardinal says it's likely that Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh won't ever go home and that "the elements of ethnic cleansing" that drove them out are now apparent. The conditions in those camps are dire, as NPR's Jason Beaubien has been reporting.

The new Reuters story, in its graphic, disturbing content, is in line with the previous accounts of atrocities in Rakhine state.

The special report published on Thursday lays out events leading up to the killing of 10 Rohingya men from the coastal Inn Din village in Rakhine state who were buried in a mass grave on Sept 2 after being hacked to death or shot by Buddhist neighbours and Myanmar troops.

The account marks the first time soldiers and paramilitary police have been implicated in violence against the Rohingya by testimony from security personnel themselves, Reuters said. According to the Associated Press, Berset said the return of Rohingya Muslims who have fled violence in Myanmar must be voluntary.

The controversial report also includes photographs of the mass grave sites that were taken by Wa Lone, one of the journalists detained for working on the Myanmar massacre story.

The PM also brought to the notice of the British foreign secretary the Wednesday's attack on the Bangladesh High Commission in London.

This additional aid specifically targets the Rohingya Muslim community, several hundred thousand of whom are living in camps in Bangladesh after being persecuted in neighbouring Myanmar.

A January statement by the Burmese army on the massacre of the 10 men said security forces were attacked by about 200 Bengalis with sticks and swords, and the security forces had opened fire into the sky, arresting 10 of the villagers while the remainder dispersed.

Reporter Michael Sullivan told NPR in December that the only reason the military has acknowledged the existence of this mass grave is that they knew that the photos connecting them with the Myanmar massacre were out there. Villagers interviewed by Reuters said there was no attack by a large number of security forces in in Inn Din.
