Five Dead, Dozens Missing After Smugglers Push 180 Migrants Overboard Off Yemen

Up To 50 Migrants Killed Off Coast Of Yemen After Smuggler Forces Them Overboard

The report from the International Organisation for Migration came less than a day after it said up to 50 migrants from Ethiopia and Somalia were "deliberately drowned" by smugglers who pushed them from a separate boat off the coast of Shabwa province in southern Yemen.

Scores of migrants were forced overboard by smugglers off the coast of Yemen - the second such incident in as many days. "This is shocking and inhumane،" De Boeck added.

They estimated the average age of those on board to be 16.

Despite Yemen's ongoing war, migration routes through the country and onto the oil-rich Gulf nations are still popular. "Twenty-five passengers (wounded) of the boat are now being treated on the coast of Yemen", told AFP a spokesman of the organization. One-third are women. In spite of the war in Yemen, African migrants continue to choose this route because there is no central authority that can prevent them from undertaking their trip.

Torn for the past three years by a war between rebels, pro-iranian government forces, pro-saudi, the Yemen, a country without resources, account of the many camps where are piled up thousands of african migrants.

The IOM statement says smugglers recently have begun pushing migrants out of boats out of fear of arrest.

"The bodies were buried in shallow graves by the survivors", Headon said.

"They were in a boat with smugglers, who dropped them at sea before arriving at the shores". The suffering of the migrants on this route is huge.

This year 55,000 African migrants reached Arabian Peninsula through this risky route, IOM said.

The journey is particularly unsafe at this time of year due to high winds in the Indian Ocean.

Crossing the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea is particularly unsafe because of strong currents and high winds.

Migrant monitoring agencies claim that 111,5000 asylum seekers arrived in Yemen from Africa past year.

Many others also try to reach Europe via Libya and the Mediterranean Sea.

"Boats are making this journey all the time where people are being abused and raped on route so that their families will pay more..."

In March, a helicopter opened fire on the vessel carrying over 140 Somali passengers in the Red Sea off the Yemen coast, killing 42 civilians and wounding another 34.
