The Arakan Army (AA) has issued a short video of a civilian it has held in captivity for four months following the siege of a national army outpost, RFA reported.

The AA said in an earlier report that it had captured 11 men along with arms and ammunition after it overran a strategic hill controlled by the government army on March 9 near a village in Paletwa township of Chin state.

In the one-minute, 20-second video, Zin Aung, one of four people the AA is currently holding, says soldiers have been treating him well.

Brigadier General Win Zaw Oo, spokesman for the military’s Western Regional Command, which is responsible for Rakhine state, dismissed the video as a publicity move by the AA.
