At least 15 Rohingyas have died as a trawler carrying Rohingyas capsized near Saint Martin’s Island in the Bay of Bengal

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has said the trawler that sank in the Bay was carrying those Rohingyas who used to live outside the camps and they were trying to go to Malaysia illegally.

He made the comments while talking to reporters after attending a program arranged by World University of Bangladesh at the National Museum on Tuesday, reports UNB.

The foreign minister also stressed the need for strengthening the camp’s security to prevent illegal migration.

At least 15 Rohingyas have died as a trawler carrying Rohingyas capsized near Saint Martin’s Island in the Bay of Bengal.

As of now, 70 Rohingyas have been rescued and given primary treatment.

Bangladesh has been hosting over 1.1 million Rohingya refugees in camps in Cox’s Bazar. Of them, more than 730,000 Rohingyas crossed over to Bangladesh in the latest episode of exodus, which began in August 2017, fleeing violent persecution carried out by Myanmar security forces and civilians.  

Each year thousands of Rohingyas try to go to Malaysia or Indonesia by sea, risking their lives in the perilous journeys.

Lured by traffickers, most people attempt the journeys before March, when the sea usually remains calm.
