Bangkok keeping 49 Rohingya boat survivors locked-up

What happened to the Rohingya boat people who came in contact with Thai authorities last year?  Some were set adrift to die of thirst, drown, or get picked up by Indonesian fishermen, while others were held on a beach and tortured.

Another group was put in Thai custody.   According to a new report, two of those held captive by Thailand in deplorable conditions died and some others were deported.  But the majority are still in detention.
