UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Thursday that he is alarmed by reports that some countries in Southeast Asia may be refusing entry to boats adrift at sea with several thousand refugees and migrants.

Thailand declined permission for a migrant boat to land on Thursday while Malaysia said it would push boats back out to sea.
