2,000 migrants stranded in boats off Myanmar: UN 20.5.2015 Asian Age: International
3K Rohingya, Bangladeshi migrants made it ashore At least 2,000 migrants stalked by hunger and violence have been trapped for weeks on boats off Myanmar, the UN said Tuesday, as Indonesia called for a regional effort to tackle the crisis. People-trafficking gangs have either dumped their human cargos from Myanmar and Bangladesh off Southeast Asia’s shores or left them stranded at sea since a recent Thai crackdown disrupted the trade’s normal routes. Nearly 3,000 Rohingya from Myanmar and Bangladeshi migrants have made it ashore in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia in recent days after being abandoned.

A group of rescued migrants, mostly Rohingya from Myanmar and Bangladesh, sit upon their arrival at the new confinement. AFP Myanmar undermines calls for response to human-trafficking; Malaysian PM Najib Razak voices concern About 900 Rohingya and Bangladeshi migrants made it to shore in Indonesia and Thailand Friday, as Myanmar undermined calls for a coordinated response to Southeast Asia’s human-trafficking crisis by threatening to boycott a planned summit.
