A Thai court has issued an arrest warrant for a senior army officer accused of being involved in the trafficking of Rohingya migrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh.
Thai reports say Lieutenant General Manas Kongpan could face a criminal trial. He is willing to hand himself in.
The warrant is part of efforts to close down smuggling routes through Thailand.
Meanwhile Myanmar's navy is reported to be escorting a boat with about 700 stranded migrants to a "safe" location.
The Information Minister told the AFP news agency that the migrants were being taken to an undisclosed but safe area and had been given food and water.
He declined naming the location because of "security and safety concerns".
