INTERSOS Update on Mixed Migration in the Gulf of Aden

INTERSOS has released a short report on the movement of migrants from the Horn of African to Yemen during the first half of 2010.  The report notes a more than 50% reduction in the number of Somalis arriving in Yemen compared with the same period in 2009.  The number of non-Somalis (mostly Ethiopians) arriving in Yemen has remained the same compared to the same period last year.  The report observes that increased efforts by Puntland authorities to halt traffickers and the increased turmoil within Somalia making movement within the country difficult may partially explain the reduced numbers.  The report notes that a reduction in the outward migration flow of Somalis into Kenya has also occurred, though there has been in increase in the numbers of Somalis entering Ethiopia.
