Rohingya Trafficking Victims Rescued in Thailand

Thai officials said on Thursday that they had rescued some 400 Rohingya people from a rubber plantation in southern Thailand’s Songkhla Province. The Bangkok-based newspaper The Nation reported that the Rohingya, from western Burma’s Arakan State, had been held at the plantation for three months by an alleged human-trafficking gang operating on the Malaysian border. The gang reportedly planned to traffic the Rohingya for US $1,980 per head to clients in Malaysia to work on fishing boats. Five girls and 61 boys under the age of 15 were among the 400 rescued Rohingya.
