News “180 Rohingya Muslims may have died at sea.” Last Minute ASIA, WORLD, CURRENT headlines and events


The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said there was no news of a moored boat in late November and they estimate that all 180 people on board have died.

UNHCR noted that cracks in the boat may have begun to form as early as December, before it lost contact with the outside world.

According to the statement, it is not known where the boat left from, but three Rohingyas, including a man whose family was on the boat, said the boat left Bangladesh.

UNHCR spokesman Babar Baloch said about 200 Rohingyas are believed to have died at sea this year or are missing. “We hope that the 180 people who were not heard from are still alive somewhere,” Baloch said.

UNHCR spokesman Baloch said 2022 will be one of the years with the most casualties or casualties at sea after 2013 and 2014.

In 2013 and 2014, 1,600 Rohingyas who were forced to leave their homeland as a result of intercommunal violence died or went missing in the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal.

Nearly 1 million Rohingyas from Myanmar are struggling to survive in overcrowded institutions in Bangladesh, where the majority of the population is Muslim.

These refugees include tens of thousands of Rohingyas who fled the country after the Myanmar army’s bloody raids in 2017.

The loss of life is connected with the fact that refugees are trying to escape from the adverse conditions they are subjected to in camps in Bangladesh.

Human rights groups estimate that the number of people leaving Bangladesh by boat this year has more than quintupled compared to the previous year, approaching 2,400. It is unclear whether the lifting of COVID restrictions in Southeast Asia played a role in this rise.

In Myanmar, where the majority of the population is Buddhist, most Rohingyas are denied citizenship and considered illegal immigrants from South Asia.
