SHAFAQNA – According to Daily Mail reported that ” More than 1,600 starving Bangladeshi and Burmese Muslim refugees have been rescued from Indonesian waters after human traffickers left them to fend for themselves. One group of about 600 people arrived in Aceh, Indonesia on four boats while a further 1,018 landed in three boats on the island of Langkawi off the north west coast of Malaysia. The refugees, many of whom were Rohingyas Muslims fleeing discrimination in Buddhist-majority Burma, had been at sea for more than two months and some had not eaten for three days.”
