Fifty-seven people are missing and presumed drowned in the Gulf of Aden after their boat capsized off the coast of Yemen. It’s thought that 54 of the people were of Somali origin and trying to escape conflict and drought in the Horn of Africa. The crossing to Yemen had been organised by human traffickers.

Daniel Dickinson has more details.
