Hundreds of Rohingya and Bangladeshi migrants have been brought to shore in Indonesia's northwestern Aceh province, Reuters reported, citing a search and rescue official.
"In total we found around 500 people out at sea and they are being brought to land in smaller boats," Khairul Nova, of the national search and rescue agency, said.
Over 350 migrants have been brought to shore by local fishermen in the town of Kuta Binje and are being registered by immigration authorities, a witness told the news agency.
The latest group brought to shore adds to the over 2,000 who have managed to land in Indonesia and Malaysia after weeks of drifting in the Andaman Sea with little food or water.
