    Amnesty accuses Myanmar military of 'crimes against humanity'

    Dec.19, Rakhine: Amnesty International says the actions of Myanmar's military may constitute "crimes against humanity" after allegations of violence against the Rohingya Muslim minority.

    The rights group's latest report accuses Burmese forces of murdering civilians, rape, torture and looting.

    Myanmar's military has denied accounts of atrocities and says it is conducting anti-terrorist raids in Rakhine.

    It comes as regional leaders gather in Yangon to discuss the violence.

    It is extremely rare for ASEAN, the 10-nation regional body representing South East Asia, to discuss the affairs of a member country.
