The helpless remaining Rohingyas adopt waterway adventure to escape atrocities

*The helpless remaining Rohingyas adopt waterway adventure to escape atrocities*

Once again, the remaining Rohingyas in Arakan are fleeing abroad with the help of engine driven boats on the waterway endangering their lives.

A boat carrying 76 Rohingya Muslims has landed in northwest Indonesia, the latest incident what rights groups expect will be a wave of dangerous sea crossings by members of the persecuted minority from Burma.

The group, which included eight children and 25 women and 43 men, suffered from varying degrees of fatigue and dehydration, authorities said.

A Rohingya Muslim man among the group says they were at sea for nine days after leaving Burma, where the minority group faces intense persecution, and were hoping to reach Malaysia.

This month, Indonesian fishermen rescued at least five Rohingya off Sumatra and media reported that five had died at sea.
