HARADH, Yemen, 1 February 2011 - "Please form a queue and wait until it is your turn," says the blue-capped official from the International Organization for Migration (IOM), who manages the registration of African migrants at the departure centre in Haradh, a dusty border town in north-western Yemen.
Approximately 30 men squeeze through the centre's gate and line up in front of a large tent, where registration takes place.
