Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - The cause of the capsize remains unclear although many journeys are currently "being undertaken aboard unseaworthy vessels by migrants desperate to return home on a near daily basis."

In spite of the dangers "the number of migrants arriving in Djibouti continues to increase," the IOM said.

"In March, over 2,343 migrants arrived from Yemen, compared to 1,900 in February. Most were trying to head home to Ethiopia and Somalia."

The incessant conflict has left "tens of thousands of migrants from the Horn of Africa" trapped in Yemen with "many living in dangerous conditions, usually without access to food, shelter, medical care and security," the IOM said.

Migrants keen to return home are forced to pay people smugglers "large sums of money to facilitate" their risky journeys home, it added.

In Yemen alone over 6,000 people have registered for Voluntary Humanitarian Return (VHR) assistance to get home with the IOM launching a $99 million appeal in March to help meet the needs of migrants in the Horn of Africa and Yemen. — Courtesy CNN
