More than 400 Rohingya migrants who were pushed back to sea in southern Thailand last week have ended up in Indonesia. Local fishermen rescued the migrants, many of whom were weak and starving, Wednesday and took them to the eastern province of Aceh. As Steve Sandford reports from Lipe Island, Thailand, thousands more may be stranded at sea, at risk of death.
