#AceNewsReport – Nov.15: “Our patrol team rushed there after being informed by the fishermen out at sea that a boat was sinking due to engine failure,” Lieutenant Commander Saiful Islam told Reuters on Friday: The coast guard rescued 58 women, 47 men and 17 children from the floundering boat: “So far this year Bangladesh police and coast guard have prevented more than 500 Rohingya refugees from being trafficked to Malaysia.”
