Myanmar lands seized migrant boat on island| Reuters

HAINGGYI ISLAND, Myanmar A boat packed with more than 700 "boat people" seized off Myanmar's coast was stopped on a small island on Saturday, as officials gave mixed signals about its final destination. Myanmar's navy discovered the boat with 727 migrants off the country's southern coast on Friday, but have since been tight-lipped on the identity of those on board, as well as their fate. Myo Win, the township administrator of Hainggyi Island, in the country's south, told Reuters the boat was taken to nearby Leik Island and the migrants were kept on board while they were provided with food, water and medical help. #Business #Economy #Sports #India #Bangladesh #France #science #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico
