A boat carrying around 250 Rohingya refugees was turned away from western Indonesia and sent back to sea. The refugees arrived off the coast of Aceh province but locals refused to allow them to land, pushing them back onto the overcrowded boat. The boat then traveled to North Aceh where locals once again sent them back to sea. The boat, which had sailed from Bangladesh three weeks prior, is no longer visible. The villagers’ rejection may be due to a lack of resources and concerns about human trafficking. The UN refugee agency called on Indonesia to help the refugees.
