"It is true that both the villagers and security forces admitted they killed the 10 Bengali terrorists", the statement read.

The military announced on Dec.18 that a mass grave containing 10 bodies had been found at the coastal village of Inn Din, about 50 km north of the state capital Sittwe.

After two attacks in last two years each by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, whom government declared as "terrorist organization", the Tatmadaw conducted clearance operations in the northern Rakhine, which drew criticism from overseas, accusing Myanmar's security forces of committed human rights abuses.

Asked about the admission on Wednesday by Myanmar's military that its security forces and Buddhist villagers killed 10 captured Rohingya during clashes a year ago, Suu Kyi stressed the importance of the rule of law and said the military will take responsibility.

Security personnel and some villagers admitted they killed "10 Bengali terrorists" and broke the Rules of Engagement, said the statement. Over 650,000 Rohingya have since fled across the border to neighbouring Bangladesh.

The remains of the victims were found buried in the mass grave in December.

Myanmar insists that the Rohingya minority are illegal migrants from Bangladesh, hence the references to "Bengalis" in official statements.

Cope and Mackey also contend there isn't much difference between "basic" and "advanced" searches - that both are highly intrusive. The EFF/ACLU lawsuit alleges that border searches of electronic devices violate the First and Fourth Amendments to the U.S.

Ten of the attackers were captured after the security forces drove the rest off by firing into the air, according to the statement on Facebook, which the military often uses to make announcements.

Refugees who have fled in their hundreds of thousands to Bangladesh have given consistent accounts of massacres, rape and torture by Myanmar security forces flanked by ethnic Rakhine mobs.

The army chief's office said "action" would be taken against villagers and security members involved in the violence at Inn Din.

The villagers assisted in the execution, according to the statement, because they wanted revenge on the Rohingya militants who had killed their family members in the past.

The military investigation was led by Lieutenant General Aye Win.

Its military's statement comes after a long denial of mischief towards the minority.

Both the United Nations and USA have stated that he military's action has amounted to ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya Muslim minority in majority Buddhist Myanmar. 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.
