The Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen has expressed alarm over the worsening plight of thousands of destitute migrants from the Horn of Africa who are stranded in northern Yemen, saying their situation needs urgent attention.

“In a desperate attempt to seek better livelihood opportunities, many migrants have suffered gross physical abuse and severe economic and sexual exploitation,” said Mr. Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed. “Many of them, including children, are stranded under extremely difficult circumstances. Their plight must be urgently addressed.”
