The military of Myanmar has admitted that its soldiers killed 10 captured Rohingya Muslims, who they labelled "terrorists".
The statement, published Wednesday on the Facebook page of Myanmar's Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, explained that security forces had been conducting a "clearance operation" when "200 Bengali terrorists attacked using sticks and swords". It comes as two reporters for Reuters news agency face trial for receiving secret documents reportedly related to the massacre.
Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Friday it was "positive" that the country's military was taking responsibility for the actions of troops after the army said soldiers were involved in killing 10 captured Rohingya Muslims.

"Villagers and members of the security forces have confessed that they committed murder", the military said in the statement, promising that those responsible would be "dealt according with the law".

The United Nations' top human rights official in September described the Myanmar army's crackdown against the Rohingya Muslim minority as "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing".
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.
Villagers had dug a pit and the men were ordered to enter it, where they were shot by the security forces.
James Gomez, Amnesty International's Southeast Asia and Pacific director, said the acknowledgement marked "a sharp departure from the army's policy of blanket denial of any wrongdoing".
