Refugees in Somaliland

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. In an unusual development, people from war-torn Yemen are fleeing to a region whose own citizens have been scattered over the world by decades of conflict -- Somaliland.
