Malaysia: 100 detained as migrant camp destroyed

From Borneo Bulletin:
Police raided a squatter settlement in a Malaysian jungle, burning down shacks and arresting more than 100 illegal immigrants, mainly from Indonesia's war-torn Aceh province, a human rights group said Wednesday.
"With the government's rush to deport illegal immigrants, (it) has lost sight of the fact that they are first and foremost human beings entitled to certain rights," the group said in a statement. "The authorities should release all asylum seekers and refugees immediately and unconditionally."
