Burmese Refugees...does anyone care

CNN has an incredible story about Burmese refugees the story states: 

"CNN's investigation -- based on accounts from tourists, sources in Thailand and a Rohingya refugee who said he was on a boat towed back out to sea -- helps to piece together a picture of survival thwarted by an organized effort not just to repel arriving refugees, but to hold them prisoner on shore, drag them in flimsy boats far out to sea and then abandon them. "

It has pictures and videos which seem to confirm the accusations. If it is true, which seems likely, it makes you wonder why no other organization is covering this.
