African migrants held at detention centre without food in Yemen

Migrants from the Horn of Africa continue to seek work in wealthy Gulf states, even attempting a dangerous transit through war-torn Yemen.

    Hundreds of African migrants are being held at a detention centre without food, in the port city of Aden.

    Most of them made dangerous journeys from the Horn of Africa despite the war in Yemen.

    Like thousands before them, the hope of getting well-paid work in wealthy Gulf states made the risk of travelling through a warzone worthwhile.

    Now, they are facing deportation.
