Around 55,000 refugees have left the Horn of Africa nations for Yemen since January, with most from Somalia and Ethiopia aiming to find work in the Persian Gulf countries, according to the IOM.
More than 30,000 of those migrants are under age 18 and from Somalia or Ethiopia, while a third are estimated to be female. The migrants usually make the risky journey across the Mediterranean Sea with smugglers, who sometimes overcrowd the boats. The survivors told officials of IOM in Yemen that smugglers have returned to Somalia to bring more migrants to Yemen from the same route.
International Organization for Migration spokeswoman Olivia Headon tells VOA the migrants knew they could die, but were helpless to resist.
People who survived the traumatic ordeal reported to authorities that human smugglers forced them into the sea just before reaching Yemen's shores.

This group includes people fleeing war-torn countries such as Syria, who are likely to be granted refugee status, as well as people who are seeking jobs and better lives, who governments are likely to rule are economic migrants.
