"The IOM says 22 people were rescued, the U.N. agency said in a statement."




A ship carrying Ethiopian migrants sank Monday off Djibouti, killing at least 38 people, according to the International Organization for Migration.



The IOM says 22 people were rescued, the U.N. agency said in a statement.

The ship was traveling to Yemen from Djibouti, the main transit country for migrants attempting to reach Gulf nations from the Horn of Africa.


The route is dangerous and leaves migrants vulnerable to trafficking, kidnapping, arrest and forced recruitment into warring groups.


Some information for this report came from The Associated Press and Agence France-Presse.
