Nine policemen have been killed in a militant attack in the western Rakhine state of Myanmar. 

The government today said the attack, carried out by Arakan Army insurgents, happened late yesterday in Yoetayoke village, just an hour north of Rakhine state's capital Sittwe. 

Myanmar's Ministry of Information said on its Facebook page that nearly 60 members of the Arakan Army terrorist group attacked using small and large weapons. 

The statement added that one policeman is injured and another one is missing. 

The insurgent Arakan Army killed 13 police in a similar attack further north in January and has frequently clashed with Myanmar security forces since December.
