In the shadow of Lampedusa: Refugee tragedy in the Gulf of Aden

Göttingen, April 17, 2009 - The Society for Threatened Peoples (GfbV) drew attention on Friday to a refugee tragedy which has gone practically unnoticed: More than 97,000 people from North-east Africa have fled since January 2007 through the Gulf of Aden in boats, most of which are un-seaworthy. The High Commissioner for Refugees of the United Nations (UNHCR) reports that at least 2,460 of these boat-people have drowned or have died in another way.
