A boat carrying more than 100 Rohingya refugees, including dozens of children, landed on the coast of Indonesia’s westernmost province Aceh on Sunday, police said.
The vessel sailed from a Rohingya camp in Bangladesh, arriving shortly after 3 a.m. on a beach in Bireun BIRI YOON district.
It carried 114 people, including 58 men, 21 women and 35 children under 15 years, police said.
Police chief Mike Hardy Wirapraja told AFP the migrants would receive a general health check up and COVID-19 rapid antigen tests.
They would later be transferred to a neighboring district which has a shelter for refugees.
It is the second wave of the persecuted minority arriving in Muslim-majority Indonesia in the recent months.
