The Myanmar earthquake: A corpse and temple damages

The 6.8 strength seismic attack on the pagoda in the antique city of Bagan caused damage to this area.

It is an important touristic attraction with many thousand Buddhistic sites.

BGP leader Thura San Lwin in Maungdawownship, near the Bangladesh frontier, said the results of the inquiry had been presented to the Naypyitaw city' s main constabulary. Said two more cases of BGP local officials "not speaking the truth" were also examined by the Interior Department in a report of the breach of the law.

President's spokesperson, Zaw Htay, said the administration "instructed the riot squad to deal with untrustworthy accounts during their Rakhine operation". Northwest Burma has been isolated since October to help laborers and other outside observation. Armed action there began after nine BGP officials were murdered in an attack on safety stations near the Bangladesh frontier on 9 October.

Burma's President's Office, armed services and law enforcement have each formed a team to investigating suspected Rakhine crime after Ms Suu Kyi pledged to prosecute the UN's accusations of atrocity. He said that the armed force and policemen "are trying to put the guilt on each other for supposed atrocities".
