Amnesty International labels serious allegations against Myanmar Army

Amnesty International has accused Myanmar's military of planting land mines in the path of Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Rakhine state.

The human rights organizations said on Sunday that Myanmar has openly used anti-personnel landmines.

Amnesty said that based on interviews with eyewitnesses and analysis by its own weapons experts, it believes there is "targeted use of landlines" along a narrow stretch of the north-western border of Rakhine state.
