Second boat carrying around 400 migrants rescued off Indonesia



A second boat carrying hundreds of migrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh has been rescued off Indonesia's far west coast, an official said on Monday, less than a day after nearly 600 others arrived in a wooden vessel seeking refuge.
 
"Our search and rescue team found another boat with more than 400 migrants, Rohingya from Myanmar and Bangladeshis, drifting off the waters off east Aceh early this morning," Aceh provincial search and rescue chief Budiawan told AFP.
