New Gulf of Aden Crossing Route (News)

The Yemen Observer reports that many Somali refugees are beginning to cross the Gulf of Aden from Djibouti to the Dhubab coast of Yemen on the Red Sea rather than crossing from Bossaso in northern Somalia to the southern coasts of Yemen.  The route is much shorter than the route from Bossaso.

“Some newly arrived Somali refugees from Djibouti said they pay US$ 200 per each passenger to be paid to smugglers to smuggle them to Djibouti and then pay US$ 50 to smugglers in Djibouti to bring them to Yemen compared to US$ 50 being paid to smugglers in Bossaso to bring them to Yemen.”
