Malaysia returns boat people to Vietnam

Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia took 317 Vietnamese illegal immigrants on buses under heavy police escort to a navy base on the east coast, where they will return to Vietnam the same way they left - by boat. Among the boat people are children born in Malaysia who are going to Vietnam for the first time. The immigrants are the first to be returned from Malaysia under the United Nations Orderly Departure Programme - forcible repatriation for immigrants who refuse to go back voluntarily. Reuter
