Islam, Rohingya refugee now living Malaysia. He has lost his father during the violence in 2012 and all family members ever since have been living in IDPs camp outskirt of Sittwe. Early in 2014 he has got on the boat in which he has seen some 600 refugees. During the perilous journey, another boat which had embarked together with Islam’s boat was sunken. “460 people on the sunken boat drowned in front of our full eyes” he said. (Photo © Lee Yu Kyung)
