Myanmar: Buddhists Kill at Least 48 Muslims

The UN has reported the storming of a village by a group of Buddhists in Myanmar at the beginning of this month which left at least 48 Muslims dead in its wake.

The international organization called for the Burmese government to open a swift and impartial investigation into the matter to determine those responsible for the killing. However, a presidential spokesman has denied these recent reports, and "strongly objects" to the UN's claims, saying their facts and figures are completely erroneous.
