More Somalis flee to volatile Yemen

A group of exhausted people shortly after reaching Yemen after a gruelling trip across the Gulf of Aden.

As drought and famine continue to force thousands of Somalis from their home country, many are choosing to embark on the risky sea journey across the Gulf of Aden to Yemen.

The majority of refugees from Somalia have sought safety and help in neighbouring Kenya and Ethiopia but since January 20,000 new refugees have reached Yemen, where the worsening security situation is making the work of the United Nations Refugee Agency, UNHCR, more dangerous every day.
