Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister General Tanasak Patimapragorn poses with delegates during an opening ceremony of the Special Meeting on Irregular Migration in the Indian Ocean at a hotel in BangkokBy Amy Sawitta Lefevre and Kanupriya Kapoor BANGKOK (Reuters) - The United States said on Friday that thousands of vulnerable migrants adrift in Southeast Asian seas needed urgent rescue, as Myanmar told a regional meeting on the crisis that it was not to blame. More than 3,000 migrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar have landed in Indonesia and Malaysia since Thailand launched a crackdown on human trafficking gangs this month. "We have to save lives urgently," U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard told reporters on her way into the meeting at a Bangkok hotel.

By Andrew R.C. Marshall WANG KELIAN, Malaysia (Reuters) - Hassan Ismail wasn't surprised when authorities found abandoned jungle camps near his village in northern Malaysia last week where 139 suspected human trafficking victims could be buried.     For the past three years, he said, small groups of sickly, rake-thin men regularly turned up to beg for food at his mosque in Wang Kelian, a village that is about 3 km (2 miles) from the nearest camp. The men told villagers they were Rohingya, a mostly stateless Muslim people fleeing persecution and poverty in western Myanmar for jobs in Malaysia.     "They were very hungry," said Ismail, 66, the mosque's imam or prayer leader. "The villagers gave them food and then called the police."      Afterwards, he said, the drill was the same: police took the Rohingya away, and the villagers never found out what happened to them.     The testimony of four Wang Kelian villagers, including prominent locals such as Ismail, raises questions about what the Malaysian authorities knew, and when, about the extensive and long-running human-smuggling operation along the rugged border with Thailand.     For years, tens of thousands of boat people have sailed from Myanmar and Bangladesh, before making the overland journey through Thailand to Malaysia.
