YEMEN It is a fearful journey. A journey you would only consider if you were desperate. In the collapsed state of Somalia most people are desperate and looking for a safer place to live. Every night starving and fearful Somalis arrive on the beaches of Yemen. They have survived a two day voyage across the Gulf of Aden. In old boats they sit huddled together, without food and with little water. A few dollar bills, gained from work, family or friends, are all they carry. Later they tell of blows, kicks and threats from people smugglers, and of those thrown overboard to drown. Some of those who get to Yemen travel to the capital city in the hope of earning a living. For others, Yemen is just one leg on a longer journey.
