' UN should investigate violence in Myanmar '

In a report issued yesterday by the army of Myanmar is denied all involvement in atrocities against the Rohingya.

Human rights organisations have scornfully responded to a report of the army of Myanmar, in which every involvement of soldiers at atrocities against the Rohingya population is denied. According to Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch makes it clear that impartial investigation by the United Nations.

Since mid-August, more than 600,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh. They have fled for an operation of the army against insurgents in the State of Rakhine. Their stories about mass murders, rapes and the burning down of villages are submitted by satellite images and other information sources supported, says HRW, but the army comes after internal investigation concluded that all here not the case. The army said that "terrorists" have been killed 376 sure, but no "innocent people".

"The serious violations against Rohingya Burmese army tries to sweep under the carpet," said James Gomez, Regional Director of Amnesty. According to Brad Adams of HRW, the authorities "will be shown again that they do not carry out credible research".

UN Secretary General António Guterres spoke at a meeting of Southeast Asian leaders in Manila with the Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi about the Rohingya crisis. He stressed according to a UN representative that "more powerful efforts for humanitarian access and safe, dignified and voluntary return, as well as to ensure reconciliation between population groups are essential".
