ADEN, Yemen, January 23 (UNHCR) - UNHCR and Yemeni authorities were looking into disturbing new reports Monday of dozens of deaths involving two more boatloads of people smuggled across the Gulf of Aden from the Horn of Africa, bringing to at least four the number of such deadly incidents in the past week.
