Many Ethiopian immigrants who try to reach Saudi Arabia are not aware of the risks of the journey, a study by the UN migration agency IOM shows. Only 30% of Ethiopian migrants seeking to find work in Saudi Arabia by crossing the Gulf of Aden are aware that Yemen — the country they must cross to reach their destination — is in its sixth year of conflict, IOM found in a new study published on May 22. Less than 50% know of the dangers of boats capsizing at sea, according to IOM.
