The Bangladesh border where refugees are sheltered is set to welcome foreign minister Boris Johnson who plans to embark on a trip to its camps.

Johnson met Myanmar's embattled unofficial leader, whose reputation among the worldwide community has crumbled over her handling of the Rohingya crisis, in the capital Naypyidaw while on a four-day tour in Asia.

The United States and the United Nations have called the military campaign against the Rohingya "ethnic cleansing". Medecins Sans Frontieres says at least 6,700 Rohingya died in the first month of violence.

However, Myanmar authorities have denied that they are carrying out ethnic cleansing in Rakhine state, speaking instead of a "clearance operation" that is a legitimate response to insurgent attacks.

Reuters news agency has published a report by two arrested reporters on the massacre of 10 Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

So the England forward will have been delighted to have been presented with an nearly identical opportunity just three minutes in. City put his valuation at around USD$90 million and wasn't budging as it moves on from the era of more wild spending sprees.

She has refused to change tack.

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".

"This once more attests to the need for a full and thorough investigation by the authorities of all violence in Rakhine State and attacks on the various communities there", United Nations spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters in NY.

Since last August, over 688,000 Rohingya people have fled slaughter in Myanmar to go to Bangladesh, joining around 340,000 Rohingya who had previously fled.

Buddhist villagers reported no rebel attack on security forces took place in Inn Din, and Rohingya witnesses told the news agency soldiers seized the 10 men from among hundreds of people who had sought safety on a nearby beach.

He said he also stressed the "urgent need to create the right conditions for Rohingya refugees to return to their homes in Rakhine".

A month after the journalists' arrest, Myanmar's army issued a rare statement admitting that security forces took part in extrajudicial killings of 10 Rohingya "terrorists" in Inn Din village.

The two men face up to 14 years in prison on charges under a colonial-era Official Secrets Act of possessing classified documents.

Johnson was expected to fly to Bangkok later on Sunday for a visit that will include meetings with Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and the Thai chairman of an advisory board on the Rohingya crisis.
