Authorities raided a camp in a rubber plantation in Songkhla's Hat Yai district where about 200 illegal Royingya migrants were reported to be hiding on Thursday morning, but found it had been abandoned shortly before they arrived, reports said. 

The camp was located in a rubber plantation near Ban Chalung in tambon Chalung of Hat Yai district.

It is believed the Rohingya were moved out of the camp by the smugglers only a few hours before the raid.
