The United Nations says the details of a Reuters investigation into the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar is "alarming" and shows the need for a thorough probe into the violence in the country's Rakhine state.

Reuters has published an extensive report of the Myanmar massacre of 10 Rohingya men in September, pulling from photographs, documents and eyewitness accounts obtained by two Reuters journalists.

Their bylines are on the report, which disputes key details of the Myanmar military's own account of the killings.

"This account also marks the first time soldiers and paramilitary police have been implicated by testimony from security personnel themselves".

If there was "strong and reliable primary evidence" of abuses, the government would investigate, he said. "And then if we found the evidence is true and the violations are there, we will take the necessary action according to the law", he said.

Bangladesh former prime minister Khaleda Zia jailed
Shirin Akhter MP, general secretary of the other JaSoD faction, however, said, "It's a verdict on a corruption case". Dhaka-based group Ain O Salish Kendra said a "total of 1,786 persons have been arrested in the last eight days".

The Rakhine state is home to a majority of Muslims in Myanmar, who have been denied citizenship and long faced persecution in the Buddhist-majority country, especially from the extremists.

The two journalists have been accused under Section 3.1 (c) of the act, which covers entering prohibited places, and taking images or obtaining secret official documents that "might be or is meant to be, directly or indirectly, useful to an enemy", Reuters reported earlier this week.

While working on the Myanmar massacre story in Rakhine state, the two Reuters journalists were arrested by Myanmarese authorities.

More than 680,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh to escape a crackdown by Myanmar's military that began following attacks by a Rohingya militant group on August 25. It said a decision was made to kill them because there was no opportunity to take them to a police station.

Instead, the men had been selected from hundreds of Rohingya men, women and children who fled the systematic torching of their village and sought safety on a beach, witnesses told Reuters.

Carter Page told George Stephanopoulos he never met Donald Trump

"Muslim houses were easy to burn because of the thatched roofs".

Lawmakers are demanding Myanmar's exclusion from US -led military exercises in neighboring Thailand next week amid pressure for more American sanctions in response to atrocities against Rohingya Muslims.

CNN cannotindependently confirm Reuters reporting as media access to the region tightly controlled.

Disturbing photographs have shed light on a massacre of 10 Rohingya men shot and hacked to death as violence in Myanmar gathered momentum in September.

Reuters editor-in-chief Stephen Adler told the BBC the organization had decided it was their "responsibility" to publish what happened in Inn Din. "We are grateful for the expressions of support for Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo and continue to call for their prompt release", the statement said. "Once we understood their legal situation, we, in consultation with Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo and their relatives, decided (to publish)", he said.
