from a recent assignment in Aceh -It could very well have ended up a ghost story. Thousands of souls from the oppressed Rohingya minority in Myanmar and impoverished Bangladeshis doomed to sail the seas in failing boats with limited supplies of food and water with no country willing to accept them; their cries and suffering absorbed by the elements. Thankfully Indonesia and Malaysia have stepped up and said that they will accept them on the condition that they be placed in third countries within a year. I sincerely hope that countries signed on to the UN Convention on refugees take their promises seriously. These people have been through enough.
