Lhoksukon, Indonesia—Nearly 600 migrants, believed to be Rohingya refugees and Bangladeshis, rest at a shelter in Aceh Province on May 11. Fishermen rescued them from two crowded wooden boats stranded off the Indonesian coast. Among the displaced were almost 100 women and children. The migrants were apparently trying to reach Malaysia, which has long attracted refugees, but a recent crackdown on human smugglers in Thailand—another popular destination—has apparently increased the numbers of those fleeing to other countries in the region.
