Bangladesh, Shah Porir Dwip
October 9, 2017 at 14:55 GMT -00:00 · Published

The funeral of 13 Rohingya refugees who were found in the waters off the Shah Porir Dwip coastline in Bangladesh, was held on Monday. The bodies of the deceased, many of them children, were buried on the island near to where the boat they were travelling on capsized.

The boat reportedly carrying 60 Rohingya refugees fleeing violence in Myanmar sank on Sunday night after being overturned in rough sea. The number of victims could rise, as other passengers of the boat have not yet been found.

Emergency response worker Muhammad Salim said the team "have rescued 16 people and [retrieved] 13 dead of the 60 people who were on the boat" adding that "the rescue operation is still underway."

Según informes, el barco que transportaba a 60 refugiados Rohingya, que huía de la violencia en Myanmar, se hundió el domingo por la noche tras ser volcado a causa del mar agitado. El número de víctimas podría aumentar ya que otros pasajeros del barco aún no han sido encontrados.

El trabajador de Servicio de Bomberos de emergencia Muhammad Salim, dijo que el equipo "ha rescatado a 16 personas y [recuperado] 13 muertos de las 60 personas que estaban en el barco", agregando que "la operación de rescate sigue en marcha”.
