Myanmar authorities on Monday have opened an investigation over a viral video which appears to show police officers beating members of the Rohingya minority in northern Rakhine state.

According to the authorities, the footage was filmed in November as police conducted a "clearance operation" in Kotankauk Village, Maungdaw township, after two police officers were shot, one fatally.

The video showed police hitting a young boy around the head as he walked to dozens of villagers who were sitting in lines on the ground, with hands behind their heads.

Authorities said, three officers were detained for further investigation, and necessary action will be taken against those officers who violated the rules.
