Starvation At Sea

The Week reproduced this report under the title Cox’s Bazar, Refugees left at sea:

Rohingya refugees from Myanmar, packed into boats in the Bay of Bengal, are at risk of starving to death, as countries are refusing them entry owing to coronavirus fears. Amnesty International says it knows of five such boats waiting off the coasts of Malaysia and Thailand.

Last week, 382 Rohingya were rescued from a boat that had set off from Cox’s Bazar, the refugee camp on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border, hoping to reach Malaysia. The boat had been adrift for 58 days, and at least 32 people on board had died.
