Human Rights Watch: Hostile Shores- Abuse and Refoulement of Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Yemen

Human Rights Watch has issued a new report detailing the treatment refugees arriving in Yemen from the Horn of Africa.

“This report documents the harsh treatment of refugees traveling to Yemen and calls on the Yemeni government to stop systematically arresting Ethiopian asylum seekers and forcibly returning them home. The 53-page report also calls on the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to put more pressure on the Yemeni government to meet its obligations toward all asylum seekers and refugees.”
