Myanmar rescues two migrant boats

By lunaradmin - May 22, 2015      

Two migrant boats were rescued holding more than 200 people.  Myanmar has faced strong criticism for not aiding those migrant boats before.  Majority of the inhabitants on the boats are Rohingya fleeing persecution in Myanmar and others are Bangladeshi migrants. 

The government has promised assistance to those that were helpless at sea.  Ministers believe only verified Myanmar citizens will be allowed to stay.  Myanmar makes it clear that the latest stranded migrants will not be allowed to stay.  Malaysia has also begun searching for migrant boats to aid.

Will the inhabitants of these migrant boats finally find refuge?
