"They were all quite young, the average age was around 16", IOM spokeswoman Olivia Headon said. Yemen is now going through a conflict and humanitarian crisis but the migrants go there to try to reach Europe or the Gulf states.

There are several refugee camps in southern Yemen, hosting Somali refugees.

Meanwhile some Ethiopians have left home after months of deadly anti-government protests and a 10-month state of emergency. Most victims were in their teenage years.
