About 60 people are now believed to have died when a boat carrying Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar capsized off Bangladesh.

The boat overturned in rough seas late on Thursday (28).

A UN spokesperson said 23 people were now confirmed dead and 40 more were missing and presumed drowned.

Dozens of Rohingya have already died trying to cross into Bangladesh amid a military crackdown in Myanmar's Rakhine state.
