At Least 6700 Rohingya Killed in Myanmar: Aid Group

At Least 6700 Rohingya Killed in Myanmar: Aid Group

After the two journalists, Wa Lone, 31, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 27, were reported missing on the evening of 12 December, the government said in a statement the next day that they had been arrested for planning "to send important security documents regarding security forces in Rakhine state to foreign agencies overseas".

"We are outraged by this blatant attack on press freedom".

"We will make it clear in the strongest possible terms that we feel that they need to be released at the earliest possible opportunity", Field said.

The ministry posted a photo of the two journalists in handcuffs, standing behind a table bearing documents, cellphones and currency.

The MSF report also pointed to victims being killed following sexual violence against them. "He was just doing his job as a journalist and we hope that they will be released soon". The Associated Press has found that the rape of Rohingya women by Myanmar's security forces has been sweeping and methodical. Guterres said the global community should do everything possible to secure the journalists' release and freedom of the press in Myanmar.

The figure of 6,700 people who were killed through violence represents "the most conservative" estimate, MSF said.

Bangladeshi officials have known the truth of the matter all this time, and have been striving tirelessly to persuade the United Nations to take tangible measures that go beyond issuing strongly worded resolutions for Myanmar to end the violence.

The military, which is charge of security in northern Rakhine, and the civilian government have barred most journalists and worldwide observers from independently traveling to the region.

"These arrests come amid a widening crackdown which is having a grave impact on the ability of journalists to cover a story of vital global importance", he said.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom said the arrests were a "threat to a democratic and peaceful development of Myanmar and that region". "Their families and others have not been allowed to see them, and don't even know where they are being held".

The U.S. Embassy said it was "deeply concerned by the highly irregular arrests of two Reuters reporters".

The two reporters have not been charged yet, and can remain in a Myanmar prison cell for up to 28 days without being charged under the country's laws.
