The decapitated body of a Muslim villager has been discovered in Myanmar's western state of Rakhine.

The President's Office of Myanmar confirmed in a statement issued on Friday that a man, identified as Shu Nar Myar, had been killed.

Police did not give a motive for the killing of the 41-year-old man, whose body was found floating in a river, but said he had spoken with local journalists in the village of Ngakhura on December 21.

"On Thursday (December 22) his family said he had disappeared after giving interviews to journalists," said Police Colonel Thet Naing in the town of Maungdaw. "This afternoon (Friday) I got the report his headless body was found... we have confirmed from villagers that it is him."

Myanmar's government forces have killed more than 80 people in Rakhine since a deadly crackdown on the Rohingya Muslims started there, according to official figures.
