The military, which has been accused of indiscriminate killings, rape and burning of Rohingya villages, acknowledged that security forces and villagers were responsible for the deaths of 10 people found in a mass grave in December.

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

Rohingyas who fled from the persecution of Myanmar security forces want to see a positive development including citizenship, security, and scope for enjoying their basic rights before they return to their country from Bangladesh, the UNHCR said recently.

The European Union (EU) urged Myanmar to allow the United Nations (UN) to access the country for conducting the probe into the Rohingya assaults reported so far. It says they're immigrants from neighbouring Bangladesh.

'The World Ends With You' Will Be Launching On The Nintendo Switch
Kotaku UK is reporting that it has heard from "multiple sources" that Dark Souls 1 is getting a remastered version. Rather than a full Direct stream, this one ran at around 15 minutes but the information came fast and furious.

It noted that Taro Kono planned to meet with Aung San Suu Kyi and military leader Min Aung Hlaing as well as visit Maungdaw Township in northern Rakhine State.

Myanmar's Ministry of Information has blamed Rohingya militants for the violence in Rakhine.

It labeled the 400 dead as "extreme terrorists" who died during military "clearance operations".

In response to the Myanmar's military's admission of killing Rohingya Muslims, Amnesty International said that the confession is just the tip of the ice berg.

"This grisly admission is a sharp departure from the army's policy of blanket denial of any wrongdoing".

"However, it is only the tip of the iceberg and warrants serious independent investigation into what other atrocities were committed amid the ethnic cleansing campaign that has forced out more than 655,000 Rohingya from Rakhine state since last August", he added.

According to an agreement signed by Myanmar and Bangladesh in November 2017, Myanmar is scheduled to begin repatriations of refugees by January 22.

"It is a positive indication that we are taking the steps to be responsible", Suu Kyi said according to the report in the Global New Light of Myanmar newspaper.
