Akram, an 18-year-old Rohingya, who cannot walk and whose body is pocked with fly-blown sores from months of immobility, rests on a makeshift bed at a mosque near Songkhla, close to Thailand's border with Malaysia February 12, 2014. Akram was one of 1,300 Rohingya that police said they detained and deported last year. He escaped a Thai trafficking camp less than three weeks ago with a horror story that underscores the human toll of Thailand's deportation policy. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj
