Mass Grave Containing 10 Bodies Found in Myanmar’s Rakhine State

BANGKOK – Authorities in Myanmar were investigating on Wednesday 10 bodies found in a mass grave in western Rakhine state, home to the mostly Muslim Rohingya minority.

Nearly 650,000 members Rohingya community have fled to neighboring Bangladesh since an outbreak of sectarian violence in late August.

The remains found in the grave belong to 10 adults. Investigators and forensic analysts estimate that, based on the state of decomposition, they could have died up to a year ago.

Without further analysis, it was impossible to determine if they were Rohingya or if they belonged to another community, members of the investigating team told the Irrawaddy news magazine.

The mass grave was discovered in Inn Din, located 50 kilometers (31 miles) north of Sittwe, the state’s capital, where civilian deaths have been reported in military operations against insurgents.

The information about the mass grave comes on the same day that the United Nations’ Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said that Myanmar had refused access to a UN Special Rapporteur tasked with assessing the human rights situation in the country.
