Wooden boat carrying 121 Rohingya found adrift off Aceh
BANDA ACEH (AP) - A wooden boat carrying 121 hungry and weak Rohingya has been found adrift off Indonesia's northernmost province of Aceh.
A doctor at a hospital in Lhokseumawe said the boat had engine trouble and was discovered by fishermen about 25km off the coast.
Dr Herry Luthfi said on Wednesday that the group included six women and two children under 5 years old. He said they were weak from hunger and dehydration.
The group's destination was unclear.
