The Hindus appear are likely to have been killed by Rohingya Muslims just as Hindus and Buddhists have been killed by Muslims for over a thousand years.
The Myanmar authorities have accused Muslim Rohingya militants of killing 28 Hindu villagers whose bodies were allegedly found in a mass grave.
The army says the bodies of 20 women and eight men and boys were found in two pits in northern Rakhine state.
The state has been in turmoil since 25 August when Rohingya militants launched deadly attacks on police posts.
