    Lhokseumawe: Lhokseumawe authorities relocated 297 Rohingya people to a temporary evacuation camp on Monday morning after Aceh residents found the stranded Rohingya refugees in Ujong Blang beach earlier today.

    "They were moved to Meunasa Nee Training Hall," Lhokesumawe Police head Adjunct Senior Commisioner Eko Hartanto said here on Monday.

    According to him, the stranded Rohingya refugees will be verified by local immigration officials and a task force from the Lhokseumawe city government. The police will also help the verification process.

    "Police and military personnel immediately visited the site after we received information from local residents. We then coordinated with immigration officials," Eko said.

    The Rohignya refugees consist of 181 women, 102 men and 14 children. They were found at around 00.40 a.m. Western Indonesia Time (WIB).

    Nearly 100 Rohingya asylum seekers were rescued by fishermen from Lhokseumawe City in June. The Indonesian government then provided assistance for them.
