UK's Johnson calls for credible Myanmar probe into reported atrocities

EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Britain's foreign minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday that Myanmar needed to start showing it is serious about the safety of the Rohingya and start a meaningful probe into atrocities which the United Nations has likened to ethnic cleansing.

"The Burmese authorities need to demonstrate that they are serious about the safety and security of the Rohingya. A credible independent investigation into reported atrocities is an important step in this process," he said, according to a Foreign Office statement.
