Kyauktaw, Arakan (Rohingya Vision) – Four Rohingya school-going children were killed as their sailboat capsized in the river in Kyauktaw Township yesterday.
The tragic incident took place around 9:45AM yesterday as 25 students from Kaadi village were going to their school in ‘Than Taung (Sainda Fara)’ village by a sailboat.
