Including Sunday's capsizing, boat accidents have killed at least 155 Rohingya trying to reach Bangladesh.

Numerous villages near Buthidaung municipality in Rakhine state have not received humanitarian assistance since the military crackdown in late August, the Burma Human Rights Network (BHRN) said.

Villagers at Shah Porir Dwip where the boats mostly land told AFP the Rohingya were increasingly travelling at night to avoid strict border patrols in Bangladesh, making the journey even more unsafe.

Myanmar's military have blamed the unrest on the Rohingya.

Thirteen Rohingya have now been picked up by border rescue boats.

Harvey Weinstein fired from the Weinstein Company
" Hollywood's power is dying because society has changed and grown, and yet Hollywood male behavior has not", she said. Weinstein was famous for numerous hit films, including "Pulp Fiction", "The Crying Game" and "The King's Speech".

Even he is unable to say how many are missing after the incident.

The coast guard said the boat sank at around 1600 GMT (10:00 pm).

Terming the Rohingya crisis as a regional catastrophe, Bangladesh Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali on Tuesday said that it is no longer an internal issue of Myanmar.

The occupants of the boat were mainly women and children.

In anticipation of the end of the ceasefire, Myanmar authorities have been on alert for renewed violence, but Rakhine State officials said today that no attacks have been reported so far.

"A massive cholera immunization campaign started today near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, to protect newly arrived Rohingya and host communities from the life-threatening diarrheal disease", United Nations said in a statement on Tuesday. Most recently, on September 28, a boat carrying about 80 refugees overturned. Late last month more than 60 refugees are feared to have died when the boat carrying them from Myanmar capsized in rough weather in the Bay of Bengal.

Worldwide aid agencies say some 520,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh since late August and the United Nations said it was bracing for a possible "further exodus".
