By Hnin Yadana Zaw and Antoni Slodkowski YANGON (Reuters) - Myanmar's navy seized a boat packed with 727 people off the country's southern coast on Friday, the government said, about a week after it found a similar vessel it said carried around 200 Bangladeshi migrants. Most of those on board this boat were also from Bangladesh, a senior official from the president's office, Zaw Htay, told Reuters. Earlier, Myanmar's Ministry of Information described them as "Bengalis", using the term the government uses to describe the country's persecuted Muslim Rohingya minority as well as people from Bangladesh.
