Death toll at 52 after migrant boats sink off Djibouti

OBOCK, Djibouti (AFP) – The death toll from the sinking of two boats carrying migrants to Yemen from Djibouti rose to 52 yesterday, the United Nations (UN) migration agency said, appealing to regional leaders to take action to stop such tragedies. Rescuers working in Djibouti’s northeastern Obock region continued to recover bodies on the Horn of Africa nation’s coast following the capsizing of the two boats earlier this week.
