This is from the BBC:
"The United Nations refugee agency says there has been a dramatic increase in the number of people crossing the Gulf of Aden in smugglers' boats. The UNHCR said almost 9,000 people, most of them Somalis, arrived in Yemen's coastal waters in the first two months of this year.
That is three times as many as during the same period last year, the organisation said in a statement.
At least 113 people died and a further 200 are missing, presumed drowned.
Those making the crossing were crammed into 182 boats, the Geneva-based UNHCR said."
