A Myanmar military officer gestures from a boat packed with migrants off Leik Island in the Andaman SeaBy Tim McLaughlin YANGON (Reuters) - Myanmar said a boat crammed with 727 migrants that it has kept stranded at sea for days was being escorted to a "safe" area for identity checks, bringing fresh criticism that it was only prolonging the suffering of people desperate to come ashore. Earlier, Ye Htut had said Myanmar's navy was taking the converted fishing boat to Bangladeshi waters - prompting its neighbor to underline that it would take back only those who were genuinely its citizens - but he later clarified his remarks to say the verification process would take place first. The migrants were found drifting in the Andaman Sea on Friday in an overloaded fishing boat that was taking on water.

South Korea has isolated more than 700 people for possible MERS infection, which is caused by a coronavirus from the same family as the one that triggered the deadly 2003 outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). MERS has a much higher death rate than SARS and there is no cure or vaccine.
