The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees is calling for help finding a group of Rohingya refugees who’ve been stranded at sea off the coast of Bangladesh after their boat broke down Saturday, leaving them adrift without food or water. Human rights workers say at least eight people have already died on the boat, which is carrying refugees believed to have left from Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. Cox’s Bazar is home to the world’s largest refugee camp with a population of some 1 million Rohingya.
