AYUTTHAYA - Twenty Rohingya migrants escaped from a detention centre in tambon Hua Ro of Muang district on Saturday morning, police said.
The illegal immigrants had been transferred to the site in Ayutthaya six months ago by the Immigration Bureau in Kanchanaburi. Authorities decided on the transfer because of conflicts that had broken out with another 20 Rohingya who had been detained and were awaiting repatriation.
Pol Maj Gen Kornek Phetchaives, superintendent of Ayutthaya police station, said officers from 26 stations were on alert for the escapers.
