Two Reuters journalists now in detention in Myanmar were arrested by authorities there because they were investigating a mass execution of minority Rohingya Muslims in the country's Rakhine state, the news agency has said.
Reuters news agency has published a report by two arrested reporters on the massacre of 10 Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
The Reuters investigation of the Inn Din massacre was what prompted the arrest of two of its reporters, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who were detained on December 12 past year for allegedly obtaining confidential documents.
Boris Johnson has urged Burmese authorities to carry out a full investigation into violence against Rohingya refugees.
The recent Reuters report on the mass execution of 10 Rohingya men on September 2, 2017 in Inn Din village of Myanmar's Rakhine State is groundbreaking for many reasons.
Judges have denied bail to the two reporters during a pre-trial hearing period, despite calls for their release from human rights groups and diplomats around the globe. Their next hearing is scheduled for February 14.
Britain's foreign minister, Boris Johnson, said he would raise the case of the two journalists during a meeting with the country's de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, on Sunday.
Reuters on Friday published a report laying out events that led up to the killing of 10 Rohingya men in the northern Rakhine village of Inn Din who were buried in a mass grave after being hacked to death or shot by Buddhist neighbours and soldiers.
Mr Johnson will later be taken on a tour of Rakhine State - the area the refugees are from - by the Myanmar military and will also meet the chair of the Advisory Board on the Rakhine Advisory Commission, Surakiart Sathirathai.
Their plight has sparked global alarm over withering press freedoms in Myanmar and government efforts to curb reporting in northern Rakhine state - where troops are accused of waging an ethnic cleansing campaign against Rohingya Muslims.
The Foreign Secretary's trip to Bangladesh - the first such official visit in a decade - comes after almost 700,000 Rohingya Muslims fled a military crackdown, which began last August.
Since last August, over 688,000 Rohingya people have fled slaughter in Myanmar to go to Bangladesh, joining around 340,000 Rohingya who had previously fled.
