BD rescues Rohingya Muslims

Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh: Bangladesh’s coast guard rescued 30 Rohingya refugees in the Bay of Bengal for two days after attacking pirates on Tuesday. About one million Rohingya refugees have fled forced repression in Myanmar and are living in sprawling camps in southeastern Bangladesh.

The boat, carrying 20 women, five men and five children, sailed near camps in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar district on Friday, Coast Guard spokesman Commander Amirul Haq said. “On Sunday, the boat was attacked by pirates who took all the valuables from the refugees and crippled the boat’s engine before leaving,” he told reporters.
