Smugglers throw migrants into the sea in Djibouti: at least 20 dead


IOM East Africa and Horn of Africa Regional Director, Muhammed Abdiker, said on Twitter that at least 20 of the 80 immigrants who were thrown from a smuggler’s boat to Yemen died on the Obock beach of Djibouti.

Reminding that thousands of young Africans tried to cross to Yemen to reach the Gulf countries, Abdiker stated that this was the third similar tragedy in the last 6 months and that more than 70 people have died so far.

People smugglers, afraid of security guards, occasionally throw migrants on the boat to escape.

EVEN THE INSIDE OF THE HOUSES WAS FROZEN
