Dozens Dead, Boat Sinks Off the Coast of Myanmar

A boat bound for Bangladesh and carrying at least 70 Rohingya Muslims capsized and sank off the coast of Myanmar on Sunday. It is not clear how many bodies were recovered, but women, children and babies were on board. The incident comes after the United Nations announced a recent influx of deadly exoduses from the Myanmar Rahkine state.
