NAIROBI, Nov 3 (Reuters) - International aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said on Monday it had found 60 corpses of would-be refugees from Somalia and Ethiopia on a beach in Yemen over the weekend.
"Those refugees that survived the journey said they were coming from the port city of Bosasso in Somalia, fleeing from war and extreme poverty," MSF said in a statement. "They made the trip on smugglers' boats in extremely harsh conditions during a two-day trip across the Gulf of Aden."
