Video shows smugglers beating Rohingya refugees on Malaysia-bound boat

A newly surfaced video shows a group of smugglers mercilessly beating rake-thin persecuted Rohingya Muslim refugees crowded onto a Malaysia-bound fishing boat at sea.

The video, filmed on a mobile phone apparently in April, shows dozens of refugees sitting in the hull and on the deck as smugglers stand among them.

One of the traffickers, holding a thick rope in one hand, pushes a Rohingya man back and kicks him. He then uses a whip with his other hand to repeatedly lash a group of shirtless refugees, including children, who scramble to avoid the beating.

The footage was shot several days before the group’s Malaysia-bound boat returned to Bangladesh in mid-April. It had departed in February.

Rohingya witnesses, who were on the ship, later told media outlets that several of their fellows on their vessel died from beatings, starvation, and illness.
