Myanmar on Saturday denied that there were five mass graves of Rohingya Muslims in a village in crisis-hit Rakhine state, saying that 19 "terrorists" had been killed and buried in the area.The Myanmar government's Information Committee said in a statement posted on its Facebook page that a government inspection team had gone to the village to probe the AP report and found it to be false.Satellite images obtained by the AP show a village that has been completely wiped out, with villagers interviewed in refugee camps in Bangladesh claiming that up to 400 people could have been killed.Last month the army made a rare admission that four members of the security forces had helped kill 10 Rohingya militant suspects on September 2 and left their bodies in a hastily dug pit.
