He demanded "what we all want to see is a safe, a dignified and secure returns for the people, for the Rohingya, back to their place of origin".

Two Reuters journalists detained for two months by Myanmar authorities were arrested for investigating a massacre of 10 Rohingya men, the news agency said in a report that detailed the grisly killings.

Myanmar has denied the charges and blocked United Nations investigators from the conflict zone, souring relations with a host of western allies.

It is the first time Reuters has publicly confirmed what Myanmar nationals Wa Lone, 31, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 27, were working on when they were arrested on Dec.12 on the outskirts of Yangon.

Jaish-e-Mohammad militants attack army camp in Jammu
Several militant groups have been fighting for Kashmir's independence from India or its merger with Pakistan since 1989. All educational institutions within half a kilometre radius of the camp have been shut down for the day.

Johnson, who later flew to Rakhine state, wrote on Twitter that he raised the "importance of [Myanmar] authorities in carrying out full & independent investigation into the violence in Rakhine". The next hearing is scheduled for Feb.14.

Human rights groups and diplomats from around the world have also called for their release, but the two have been denied bail.

Reuters on Friday published a report laying out events that led up to the killing of 10 Rohingya men in the northern Rakhine village of Inn Din who were buried in a mass grave after being hacked to death or shot by Buddhist neighbours and soldiers.

The killings of 10 Rohingya men occurred in the village of Inn Din in September previous year and the bodies were buried in a mass grave after they were hacked to death or shot and killed by Buddhist neighbours and Myanmar soldiers.

The meeting followed Johnson's visit to a refugee camp in Bangladesh's Cox's Bazar district, where almost 700,000 Rohingya have sought sanctuary after fleeing a Myanmar army crackdown launched in northern Rakhine last August.

Myanmar's Catholic cardinal says it's likely that Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh won't ever go home and that "the elements of ethnic cleansing" that drove them out are now apparent.
