Vietnamese "boat people" arriving at a refugee camp in Malaysia said pirates had attacked their craft, raping 15 women and throwing others overboard. At least 71 people were feared dead. The 13 survivors told U.N. refugee officials on the island of Bidong that they fled Vietnam in a group of 84 but were attacked by pirates in two fishing boats as they headed for Malaysian waters late Saturday.

Vietnamese refugees in Malaysia are being beaten and threatened in a Malaysian government effort to force them to return to Vietnam, leaders of an Orange County-based support group said Thursday. They implored the U. S. government and human-rights groups to aid the refugees. At an emotional news conference, two men who said they lived until recently in a Malaysian camp recounted grisly stories of refugees beaten by soldiers, sprayed with chemicals and enduring prison-like restrictions.
