Bangladesh: Thirty Rohingya refugees were stopped by Bangladesh security forces on Friday, from being smuggled to Malaysia by boat.
According to Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) forces, 17 women, six children and seven men were detained on a beach near the coastal town of Teknaf.
Two suspected human traffickers were detained in the operation by BGB forces in Cox’s Bazar district late Thursday.
Lieutenant Colonel, Asadud Zaman Chowdhury said, the 30 Rohingya were lured by the human traffickers operating in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar and had paid about 1,000 dollars each for “safe passage” to Malaysia.
It is the third time since November, that Rohingya have been intercepted while attempting to reach Malaysia by boat.
SHOOTER GETS LIFE IN PRISON FOR QUEBEC CITY MOSQUE MASSACRE
QUEBEC CITY: A 29-year-old who shot dead six worshippers at a Quebec City mosque two years ago, got life in prison on Friday.
Alexandre Bissonnette will have to wait 40 years which is longer than usual, before he can apply for parole.
Judge Francois Huot rejected a prosecution request for a 150-year sentence, saying that this kind of sentence would be a cruel and unusual punishment under Canadian law.
He added, Bissonnette, at the time of shooting, appeared to have been seduced by nationalist and supremacist ideologies to commit this deadly massacre.
The attack at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre in Sainte-Foy neighbourhood of Canada’s oldest city was concluded to go down in Canadian history written in blood as one of this country’s worst tragedies.
