Fears grow for Rohingya migrants on missing boat

A Rohingya migrant crying as he sits with others in a boat drifting in Thai waters off the southern island of Koh Lipe in the Andaman seaFears grew on Tuesday for the welfare of hundreds of Rohingya migrants on a boat bounced between waters off Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia that has not been heard from in more than 60 hours. Around 300 men, women and children were found pleading for help Thursday on the drifting trawler which has become emblematic of Southeast Asia’s growing migrant crisis and the region’s reluctance to offer sanctuary to the passengers. The Thai navy said it had repaired the engine and provided visibly thin passengers with food, water and medicine on both Thursday and Saturday before “escorting” the vessel into international waters.
