Malaysia Finds Mass Graves of Suspected Trafficking Victims

Malaysian authorities said Sunday that they have discovered a series of graves in more than a dozen abandoned camps used by human traffickers on the border with Thailand, where Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar have been held.
The finding follows a similar discovery earlier this month by police in Thailand, who unearthed at least 33 bodies from shallow graves on the Thai side of the border.
The grim discoveries are shedding new light on the hidden network of jungle camps run by traffickers who have for years held countless desperate migrants captive while extorting ransoms from their families.
