Dozens of Rohingyas drowned as boat carrying them capsized

rohingya

Tragedy struck the unfortunate lot of Rohingya refugees as the boat they were in capsized in Naf river. More than 60 Rohingya refugees are feared dead leaving distraught relatives to hold burials on Friday in Bangladesh camps that the Red Cross says are tipping into a health crisis. Half a million Rohingya have crushed into camps in Bangladesh in just over a month, fleeing a Myanmar army campaign and communal violence that the UN describes as “ethnic cleansing”. They have poured over on foot or crossed the Naf river, which bisects the two countries in overcrowded boats. One of them capsized in rough waters on Thursday agonisingly close to the shore. The bodies of 23 people have been retrieved from the water so far but the death toll is expected to surge to around 60. “Forty are missing and presumed drowned,” IOM spokesman Joel Millman told reporters in Geneva.
