Malaysian authorities confirmed Sunday that eight Indonesians were killed and at least 20 others remained missing after a boat capsized off the southern state of Johor.
According to the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), 34 people were rescued after the vessel carrying more than 60 “illegal immigrants” sank at 9.45 p.m. (0145GMT) Saturday.
“Search and rescue teams recovered the bodies of two men and two women as of Sunday afternoon, adding to the four that were found after the incident,” it said in a statement.
Those rescued were placed in the custody of the immigration department to be investigated under the Immigration Act 1959/63 and the Anti-Trafficking In Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act 2007, as it works with the Indonesian Consulate on the repatriation and documentation process.
Of the 34 survivors — including 26 men and eight women aged between 20 and 50 — only three were reported to possess travel documents.
MMEA said search and rescue operations are underway in a three nautical mile area of the region’s beaches.
