Yemenis Escaping Conflict Flee to Somaliland


In an unusual development, people from war-torn Yemen are fleeing to a region where citizens have been scattered the world over by decades of conflict. In the past year, nearly half of the 176,000 people who have fled Yemen’s conflict have gone to the Horn of Africa, according to the U.N. refugee agency. Many are Africans returning to their countries of origin but about 26,000 are Yemenis with nowhere else to turn. Jill Craig reports from Hargeisa in Somaliland.
