12 dead after refugee boat capsizes
    2017-October-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A BOAT carrying Rohingya Muslim refugees to Bangladesh capsized and at least 12 people, most of them children, drowned, police said yesterday, the latest victims of violence in Myanmar that has forced more than half a million people to flee.

The boat sank near Shah Porir Dwip, on the southern tip of Bangladesh, late Sunday with up to 35 people on board, Bangladeshi police said.

Bangladeshi fishermen have been cramming their boats since late August with desperate Rohingya fleeing a Myanmar security crackdown that the United Nations has denounced as ethnic cleansing.

Bangladeshi police officer Mohammed Mainuddin told reporters that 12 bodies — 10 children, one woman and a man — had been recovered.

Authorities said 13 people had been rescued.

Some 519,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar since Aug. 25, when attacks by Rohingya militants on police and military posts in Rakhine State sparked a ferocious response from Myanmar’s security forces.

Myanmar rejects accusations of ethnic cleansing and has labeled the militants from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, who launched the initial attacks, as terrorists. (SD-Agencies)
