38 migrants killed and 100 missing after a boat capsized in Yemen

# At least 38 migrants, travelling from the Horn of Africa, have died while over 100 others are still missing after their boat capsized off the coast of Yemen. Seventy-eight people were rescued. Authorities say those on board were mostly from Ethiopia, using Yemen as a transit point to reach Gulf states. The International Organisation for Migration says the number of African migrants making the crossing annually had tripled from roughly 27-thousand in 2021 to over 90-thousand last year.
