According to migrants rescued from a sinking boat off Indonesia, about 100 people have died after a fight broke out over the last remaining food.

Survivors said that people were stabbed, hanged or thrown overboard.

If true, the claims will add to the growing international pressure on Asian countries to find a solution to this crisis.

The migrants had wanted to land in Malaysia but say they were driven away by the Malaysian navy.

The 700 rescued migrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh are being processed by the Indonesian authorities.
