    Malaysia says that it will ship seventy thousand Vietnamese refugees back into international waters and will shoot on sight any "boat people" entering its waters. Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Mahathir Mohammad said on Friday (June 15) that the deportation of refugees would begin immediately and would continue as fast as boats could be built to carry them. The Deputy Premier said that being human had not paid off for his government. Meanwhile the governor of Hong Kong was summoned to London for talks on Thursday (June 14) with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher about the refugee situation. Sir Murray Maclehouse met reporters in London on Friday (June 15.)
