New York, U.N. Human Rights Council has voted on Thursday to establish a panel to prepare criminal indictments over atrocities committed, in Myanmar, amid allegations of genocide against the Rohingya Muslim minority.

U.N. rights top body voted to establish an ongoing independent mechanism to collect, consolidate, preserve, and analyze evidence of the most serious international crimes and violations of international law committed, in Myanmar, since 2011.

The fact-finding mission of the UN report concluded there was enough evidence to merit investigation and prosecution of Myanmar's army chief and five other top military commanders for crimes against humanity and genocide against the Rohingya.
