Myanmar security forces took part in killing 10 Rohingya: army

This telling of the events was based on interviews with security forces and villagers conducted by a five-person investigative team led by military inspector general Lt. -Gen.

The 10 bodies were found in December in a mass grave near a cemetery in Inn Din village.

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

The post also said tensions were high in the ethnically mixed Inn Din village at the time of the massacre because a Rakhine man had been killed in the vicinity days earlier.

Myanmar has been accused of carrying out ethnic cleansing in Rakhine state.

Myanmar has refused to allow journalists and external investigators into Rakhine to look into the allegations of abuses.

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.

"Villagers and members of the security forces have confessed that they committed murder", the military said in a statement.

"This is quite a striking acknowledgement by Myanmar's military of wrongdoing", said political analyst Richard Horsey.

Security forces had been conducting a "clearance operation" in the area on Sept 1 when "200 Bengali terrorists attacked using sticks and swords", the military said in a statement posted on the Facebook page of its commander-in-chief, Snr Gen Min Aung Hlaing.

"This incident happened because ethnic Buddhist villagers were threatened and provoked by the terrorists".

"The army will take charge of those who are responsible for the killings and who broke the rules of engagement".

The army launched a sweeping counter-offensive in the north of the state in response to Rohingya militant attacks on Aug 25, triggering an exodus of more than 650,000 Rohingya Muslim villagers. In November, the military exonerated itself of blame in the recent violence, and flat out denied killing any Rohingya people, burning villages, raping women and girls and stealing possessions.

Those allegations, which have been cross-checked by media and rights groups, have seen Myanmar accused of ethnic cleansing by the USA and United Nations and prompted questions over whether the crackdown may have amounted to genocide. They were arrested on December 12 after going to meet policemen who reportedly gave them secret documents.

She said the decision to block her suggested "something terribly awful" was happening in Rakhine.
