Traffickers dumped dozens of refugees and migrants off the coast of Djibouti in East Africa earlier this week, killing at least 20 of them, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

An overloaded boat with more than 200 migrants set sail from Djibouti on Wednesday afternoon bound for Yemen, said the IOM, which belongs to the UN system.

Shortly after leaving, the traffickers threw about 80 people into the sea. According to survivors, many children were on board.

According to the IOM, the incident is further evidence that "criminals continue to exploit desperate people trying to make a living to make a profit, ignoring the consequences," according to a press release issued [1].

Survivors receive medical care at an IOM facility in Djibouti.

At least 50 refugees and migrants died in similar incidents in October.

Every year in East Africa, tens of thousands of young Africans, especially those from war-torn countries such as Somalia or Ethiopia, travel to Djibouti to try to cross the sea to Yemen and from there to wealthy Arab countries in search of work.

Many trapped in Yemen trying to reach Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates lose their lives trying to return to their home countries.
