Thousands of people risk lives sailing from Bay of BengalListen /
Thousands of people desperate for peace and a better life elsewhere continue to risk their lives by crossing the Bay of Bengal, according to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
They include the Rohingya people who fled Myanmar when inter-communal violence erupted there two years ago.
UNHRC has expressed concern about reports of growing abuse and exploitation by smugglers who transport these people by boat.
To find out more about the people who continue to risk their lives crossing the largest bay in the world, Derrick Mbatha called Vivian Tan, UNHCR spokesperson based in Bangkok, Thailand.
