Bangladesh has turned back more than 2,000 Rohingyas who have tried to enter the country after deadly violence between Rohingyas and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists erupted this month in neighboring Myanmar.
A total of 62 people were killed and dozens were wounded between June 8 and 19 in the sectarian unrest, Rakhine state spokesman Win Myaing said Thursday.
He said the last reported deaths occurred Tuesday in Yathetaung township, about 30 miles north of the Rakhine state capital, Sittwe, when clashes took 12 lives, including two Muslims. Security forces restored calm there on Wednesday, he said.
90 missing after boat capsizes
CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA — A boat carrying about 200 people apparently attempting to reach Australia to seek asylum capsized south of Indonesia, and scores were feared drowned Thursday.
Indonesian and Australian navies launched efforts to rescue survivors.
An Australian navy patrol boat and three cargo ships had rescued 110 survivors by late Thursday and were taking them 120 miles south to the Australian territory of Christmas Island, Australian Maritime Safety Authority spokeswoman Jo Meehan said.
The boat capsized about halfway between Christmas Island and Indonesia.
It was not immediately clear where the passengers were from.
