Al Jazeera World - Trapped in Yemen

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

Since 1991, after the collapse of the Siad Barre regime, a civil war in Somalia has triggered a steady exodus from the country that continues today. Somalis regularly flee to Yemen which has had an open door policy towards them since the war began. In this film, we hear the stories of refugees at Kharaz refugee camp and others in Sanaa trying to start a new life in the city. We speak to the aid agencies and officials; and we track down and confront the human smugglers who kidnap and abuse the vulnerability of refugees whose families can face ransom demands.
