The Rohingya are a distinct ethnic Muslim minority group who are predominately from Myanmar. Estimates range that from 6,000 to 20,000 Rohingyas have fled Myanmar on boats and are currently stranded at sea. Many neighboring countries have turned them away, denying them aid, assistance, and a safe-haven from persecution.
