myanmar: Up to 35 people were on the boat and eight survived the capsizing, local police official Mainuddin Khan said, according to The Chronicle Herald. He said rescuers have retrieved 12 dead bodies but it was not exactly clear how many were missing. Five of the dead were children. The search was continuing, but the sea remained rough. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled Myanmar since Aug. 25 when the military launched a crackdown that had been decried by the United Nations as ethnic cleansing. The capsizing occurred near the Shah Porir Dwip in Bangladesh's southern coastal district of Cox's Bazar as the boat was moving toward Bangladesh late Sunday. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
