90,000 child refugees could die in Somalia

Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra reports from the refugee camps of Yemen on the people fleeing the fighting in Somalia.

Last year more than 100,000 people made the perilous journey across the Gulf of Aden to Yemen in order to flee the fighting in Somalia – according to the figures given by the ‘Yemen Observer’.

This year 32,000 others have joined them in order to escape too. However it is estimated that one in 20 did not survive the trip.

Amnesty International issued a warning in a new report that 90,000 children could die in Somalia in the coming months.
