Deadly cholera outbreak hits African migrants in Yemen

Exposed to hunger and struck by disease, Africans who have crossed the sea from Djibouti in search of a better life are the latest victims of Yemen's cholera epidemic.

    Health officials in Yemen have recorded more than 200,000 suspected cases of cholera since January.

    Unseasonal rains along with rising temperatures are said to have caused a spike in the disease.

    They say they have seen the disease spreading among increasing numbers of African migrants and refugees entering the country.
