As more and more Muslims are risking their lives, trying to get to Malaysia on shaky boats, Malaysian police forces found a horrible testimony of the trafficking deals in more than a dozen of camps along the border with Thailand.

We believe that these graves contain the bodies of illegal migrants

– said the official representative of Malaysian government.

Thailand is known as a considerable point on the human trafficking route in the southeast of Asia. Upon bringing migrants to Thailand, dishonest dealers keep the migrants in the jungles until their relatives will pay the redemption for them.

Yet, the bodies weren’t identified and counted.

Earlier, Myanmar officials reported that their forces rescued more than 200 illegal migrants from the ship. Most of them were adults, aged from 30 to 40.

Meanwhile, Myanmar authorities decided to meet with other governments in the region in order to find a solution to the human trafficking problem. Myanmar is considered to be the worst place for Rohingya Muslims, and that is the reason, why they risk their lives, trying to emigrate from the country.
