Ethiopian migrants rescued from Yemen

Around 12,000 people take the dangerous sea journey from the Horn of Africa to Yemen every month despite its poverty.

Hundreds of Ethiopian migrants have returned home from Yemen as part of a UN repatriation programme.

The International Organization for Migration says thousands more are waiting to leave and are being held in a football stadium in the port city of Aden.
