Reuters on Thursday released a report of ethnic killings in Myanmar detailing an investigation by two journalists who are currently imprisoned in the Southeast Asian country.
The news agency revealed the massacre of 10 Rohingyas at the village Inn Din, where Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo talked to neighbors of Buddhists who reportedly claimed to kill and bury their corpses in a mass grave.
The report included photos of 10 men kneeling with hands tied behind their backs they were reported the same day they were killed. One more shows the bodies of the men in a mass grave. Witnesses said the photos were authentic, Reuters said.
"The Reuters investigation of the Inn Din massacre sparked Myanmar police to arrest two reporters of the news agency," the report said.
In a rare confession, the military of Myanmar a month after the arrest of the journalist said that his security forces were responsible for the deaths of 10 Rohingyas found in the mass grave of Din Inn.
The military continues to deny the systematic killings of the Rohingya Muslim minority, which the UN considers to be an ethnic cleansing. [as]
