Torture, Rape and Murder - Miserable stories of Ethiopian migrants in Yemen

From the dawn of human civilization people used to travel across the world, across mighty mountains and deep oceans, dry deserts and dangerous forests. Many perished on the way; numerous others reached far flung lands and started a new life.

In those days such journeys were a gamble. A bet those people made for a better tomorrow, for a better future. Dangers always hung as Damocles sword above their head. Even now, it is very much dangerous in many parts of the world – illegal detentions, indefinite prison terms, boat accidents, shooting at borders, brutal torture, rape, kidnappings etc.

BBC’s Yalda Hakim illustrates the fate of Ethiopians in Yemen here - "Ethiopianmigrants tell of torture and rape in Yemen".
