Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar, who were rescued by the Myanmar navy alongside Bangladesh refugees, are interviewed by immigration officers at a Muslim religious school used as a temporary refugee camp, at the Aletankyaw village in the Maungdaw townshipBy Soe Zeya Tun and Antoni Slodkowski ALAETHAKAW VILLAGE, Myanmar, May 24 (Reuters) - At least eight Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar were among some 200 migrants rescued from a trafficking boat by the Myanmar navy on Thursday, according to interviews conducted by Reuters, contradicting official accounts that all onboard were from Bangladesh. Myanmar portrayed the rescue operation as a proof that thousands of 'boat people' were not persecuted Rohingya from Myanmar, denying it discriminates against the minority and resisting pressure to help solve the problem. Southeast Asia is grappling with a humanitarian crisis involving thousands of people trafficked from Myanmar and Bangladesh into Malaysia and Indonesia.

US feminist Gloria Steinem (2nd R) arrives with other peace activists at the inter-Korea transit office after they crossed the DMZ separating the two Koreas, in Paju, on May 24, 2015An international group of women peace activists, led by American feminist Gloria Steinem, made a rare crossing on Sunday of one of the world's most militarised borders between North and South Korea. The group of 30 activists rode by bus through the demilitarised zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas in what Steinem described as a "triumph" for peace and reconciliation, dismissing criticism that the women had allowed themselves to be used as propaganda tools by the North. Detractors argued that the group had played into the North's hands by refusing to directly criticise its dismal human rights record during their stay in Pyongyang, where the activists held a peace gathering with North Korean women's groups.
