Suu Kyi says Rohingya mass grave investigation "positive"

Suu Kyi says Rohingya mass grave investigation

Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has called the military's investigation into the deaths of Rohingya Muslims found in a mass grave a "positive indication", state media reported Saturday.

In response to Myanmar's military's admission of killing Rohingyas, Amnesty International said on Thursday that the confession is just the "tip of the iceberg".

"We have made a decision to provide the aid in response to the agreement between Myanmar and Bangladesh to represent an global message of support so that the repatriation can be carried out promptly", said Foreign Ministry official Shinobu Yamaguchi in a statement.

As per Anadolu news agency, the request comes after the military admitted to the killing of 10 Rohingyas in the war-ravaged Rakhine state.

"I see it that way because a country needs to take responsibility for the rule of law in the country, and this is the first step on the road of taking responsibility and it is a positive thing", She said, according to a transcript of the news conference posted on her Facebook page.

JAPAN'S foreign minister, Taro Kono, has urged Myanmar's civilian leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, to guarantee the safe and voluntary return of displaced Rohingya Muslims to the troubled Rakhine state. The army appointed a senior officer to investigate. But the military has insisted that there has been no wrongdoing by any security forces.

Neither the military nor Suu Kyi has said what action will be taken against those responsible for the deaths linked to the mass grave in Rakhine state.

Cox's Bazar's Additional Superintendent of Police Afruzul Haque Tutul said, "The fire, which broke out at around 3:30 am late on Friday, from a candle in their tent at the camp, also left three others injured".

More than 655,000 Rohingyas have crossed into Bangladesh since August 25 previous year, escaping a military crackdown in the Rakhine state, which many countries and human rights bodies have described as ethnic cleansing.

Myanmar denies ethnic cleansing, saying its security forces had mounted legitimate counter-insurgency clearance operations.
