Monk denied bail after allegedly inciting unrest during anti-Rohingya protest in Myanmar
Meanwhile, on Friday, the commanding officer in Rakhine State, Major General Maung Maung Soe was replaced. "Those responsible for abuses must be held accountable", she said.
"This is according to interviews and focus groups they've been conducting in Cox's Bazar", he said, referring to where makeshift refugee camps were established in southeastern Bangladesh, neighbouring Myanmar's Rakhine state.
Contradicting the army report, several Rohingya who fled violence have already detailed accounts of mass killings, brutal beatings, torture and rape against Rohingya children, women, and men.
HRW said the military's "cover-up" should provide further fuel to calls for sanctions against Myanmar military commanders.
Irish musician and activist Bob Geldof also called Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi "a handmaiden to genocide".
Turkey's state-run aid agency has provided winter aid to Rohingya Muslims who have crossed into Bangladesh to escape violence and persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine state.
It also blamed the militants for setting fire to the villages and frightening and coercing people to leave their homes.
Amnesty International also dismissed the military's internal investigation and called for a United Nations fact-finding mission and for other independent investigators to be given full access to Rakhine.
In his meeting with Myanmar's State Counselor, the UN Secretary-General highlighted the need for allowing the return of displaced Muslims who have fled to neighboring Bangladesh.
On Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman stated that the crisis in Myanmar "looks like ethnic cleansing". A Sky News team recently documented the mass migration of the Rohingya people from Rakhine State. Separately on the margins of the ASEAN summit here, the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also met Suu Kyi and discussed the humanitarian crisis in the Rakhine state.
The statement was drawn up by the Philippines, current chair of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) - which includes Myanmar - whose leaders met for a plenary session in Manila on Monday.
"I can not hide my deep concern with the dramatic movement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh".
Since the beginning of the crisis, and beyond the end of violence, the United Nations chief reiterated his call for unhindered humanitarian access to affected communities; and the right to safe, voluntary and dignified return of those who fled, to their places of origin. "It is a worrying escalation in a protracted tragedy and a potential source of instability in the region", he said.
"The military's grave crimes committed with impunity are exactly what the International Criminal Court was created for".
In a related development, Bangladeshi authorities on Tuesday handed over four Rohingya "terrorists" to Myanmar, said Police Colonel Aung Htay Myint of the Myanmar Police Force's Transnational Crime Department.
