More Rohingya Muslims found on Malaysian beach

About 740,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar for Bangladesh following a brutal military clampdown in their home country in August 2017 joining hundreds of thousands already living in crowded camps

About 740,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar for Bangladesh following a brutal military clampdown in their home country in August 2017 joining hundreds of thousands already living in crowded camps

In this undated handout photo released April 8, 2019, dozens of people believed to be Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar who were dropped off from a boat are pictured on a truck before being taken to a police station near Sungai Belati, Perlis, Malaysia.

This is the second group of Rohingyas found in northwest Peninsular Malaysia, near the border with Thailand, after 35 members of the community were discovered in the same district in March.

Noor Mushar said one of the men told police that they were part of over 200 Muslims from northern Rakhine in a large boat that sailed overnight from Thailand, and that 47 of them were transferred to a smaller boat to Perlis after they paid 4000 ringgit (K1.47 million/US$977) each to a trafficker.

More boats carrying about 200 Rohingya migrants are believed to be at sea, the state police chief added.

Noor Mushar said the 41 men have been handed over to the immigration department as they have no valid travel documents.

Malaysian authorities are on the lookout for more Rohingya boats entering the country's waters, Noor Mushar said.

"Since there was no one to greet them, they made their way in separate groups to the nearby villages, covered in mud", he said, adding they were in good health despite their ordeal.

The traditional route to Malaysia is by boat from Myanmar or Bangladesh.

Relatively affluent, Muslim-majority Malaysia has always been a favourite destination for Rohingya, where they are a source of labour in low-paying industries such as agriculture and construction. But Myanmar authorities do not recognize them as citizens and consider them to be Bangladeshi immigrants, denying them basic rights.

The deployment occurred against the backdrop of ongoing border talks between officials from Myanmar and Bangladesh, whose bilateral relations have deteriorated since a crackdown by Myanmar's security forces in 2017 caused over 700,000 Muslim Rohingya to flee across the border into Bangladesh. An outbreak of sectarian violence in Rakhine in 2012 prompted tens of thousands of Rohingya to flee Myanmar by sea.

But the force's lieutenant colonel, Sarker Mohammad Mustafizur Rahman, told AFP it was the first time since 1997 their men had landed there.

More than 34,000 Rohingya were also thrown into fires, while over 114,000 others were beaten, said the report, titled "Forced Migration of Rohingya: The Untold Experience".
