Five Rohingyas die as boat carrying them to B’desh capsizes

Yet another boat mishap took place in the Naaf river that divides Myanmar from Bangladesh.

Five Rohingyas are said to have drowned after their boat headed towards Bangladesh from Rakhine state of Myanmar capsized.

It need be recalled that so far over 200 such deaths have been reported as the Rohingyas continue to flee from violence torn Myanmar’s Rakhine state to seek refuge into Bangladesh, a Muslim country.

Bangladesh armed forces officials informed that boat capsized due to being overloaded.
