Myanmar: Military's mass grave admission exposes extrajudicial killings of Rohingya
12 January, 2018, 06:20
But displaced Rohingya inside Bangladesh have angrily denied the army's account, with survivors who fled Inn Din insisting those killed were not militants but civilians murdered in cold blood.
In its account of the massacre the army chief's office said security forces captured 10 Rohingya militants before killing them as violence engulfed the village and its surrounding area. The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said the campaign amounts to ethnic cleansing that could include "elements of genocide".
It was a rare admission of wrongdoing by the Myanmar military during its operations in the western state of Rakhine.
She painted a harrowing picture of the situation in Rakhine, noting that prior to August 25 a year ago, when the most recent outbreak of violence occurred, the UNICEF had been treating 4,800 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition; these children are no longer receiving this life-saving treatment.
The pair have widely covered the military campaign in Rakhine although Reuters has declined to comment on whether they were specifically reporting on the mass grave in Inn Din.
Mercado also pointed to "an acute level of fear between the Rakhine and Rohingya communities", recalling a story that parents in one Rohingya village said they hadn't had their children vaccinated against Japanese Encephalitis because the government vaccinators were accompanied by security officers-while government workers said they dared not go to Rohingya communities without security.
Ten of the attackers were captured after the security forces drove the rest off by firing into the air, according to the statement on Facebook, which the military often uses to make announcements.

The captives should have been handed over to police, the army statement said, but with militants mounting continuous attacks and destroying two military vehicles, "there were no conditions to transfer the 10 Bengali terrorists to the police station and so it was made a decision to kill them".
"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.
"Action will be taken according to the law against villagers who were involved and security members who broke the Rules of Engagement", the post added.
Inn Din villager Wal Marjan, 30, said they were attacked by Buddhist mobs flanked by soldiers, who later "selected 10 to 15 men to attend a meeting".
The military investigation was led by Lt Gen Aye Win. Then members of the security forces shot them dead, the military said.
About 60,000 Rohingya children in camps in Rakhine State are enduring appalling conditions and unable to receive treatment for health problems, including acute malnutrition, says the United Nations Children's Fund.
Its military's statement comes after a long denial of mischief towards the minority.
