(Daily Star): Coast guard personnel recovered the bodies of five children from Teknaf shore on Friday raising the death from the boat capsize in Bay to 27.

The bodies of the children aged between 10 and 12 years were recovered in Dargah Chhara and Habir Chhara areas until 11:30am since 6:00am; said Didar Ferdous, inspector of Teknaf Police Station.

The bodies were taken to Teknaf Police Station, reports our correspondent in Cox’s Bazar.

The inspector added that the death toll could rise as reports of floating of more bodies were poring in.

Earlier on Thursday, 22 bodies were recovered from Teknaf shore. The dead include 15 children and three women.

Babul Akhter, additional Police commissioner of Cox’s Bazar, said a trawler had capsized with 200 Rohingyas in Myanmar two days ago and that the 22 dead might be among the victims of the accident.

Ferdous however said a trawler carrying some passengers sank in the Bay of Bengal on Wednesday night, after cyclone Mahasen hit the coastal belts and the dead were among the passengers.

The 22 victims, most of them apparently Myanmar nationals, had set off for Malaysia from Teknaf on Wednesday, Didar added.
