Militants attack Myanmar security forces leaving 25 people dead

The attacks that targeted northern Rakhine state reportedly took place a day after a United Nations panel led by the former UN chief Kofi Annan recommended that country leader Aung San Suu Kyi deal with the Rohingya crisis in a "calibrated" way without excessive force.

It was not immediately clear if any were hit, but the civilians scattered to evade the barrage.

On Saturday up to 2,000 displaced Rohingya women and children gathered at the "zero line" marking the border with Bangladesh but were denied entry, according to authorities. At least six guns were lost to them. "They have not consulted with the BGB".

Myanmar army sources said that today's attack was much stronger as compared to earlier attacks, which shows that the militants have become more organized and lethal.

"The government has directed to enforce the best efforts to stop any fresh influx and tackle the situation", said deputy commissioner (DC) of the district Md Ali Hossain. That figure could not be confirmed.

Those who managed to reach the Bangladeshi border were still far from safe as officials refused to let them pass.

The two managed to cross the border at Cox's Bazar the same night and then travelled to Chittagong city, he said.

"Some people brought Musa and Mukter to CMCH around 3:00am [yesterday]", said Jahirul, adding, of them, Musa sustained bullet injury in abdomen while Mukter in left shoulder and Idris in his head.

"One of them, aged 25, died hours after he was admitted here", the doctor said on condition of anonymity.

The Office of the Commander-in-Chief also said more emphasis must be placed on Muslims' refusal to participate in the national verification process.

After the attacks, government forces evacuated several dozen government staffers and their families, as well as some 400 villagers from near the Nanthataung Philanthropic School, according to the State Counsellor Office Information Committee in Rangoon.

Friday's clashes were concentrated around Rathedaung township, where there has been a heavy build up of Myanmar troops in recent weeks, with reports filtering out of killings by shadowy groups, army-blockaded villages and a renewed exodus of refugees heading towards neighbouring Bangladesh.

The government has declared the group a "terrorist" organisation.
