Hundreds of African immigrants flee Northern Aden detention site


Hundreds of African immigrants escaped last night from a football stadium in al-Mansoura district, north of the city of Aden, where security forces detained them earlier last week, local source and eyewitnesses told Al-Masdar online.

The source said that hundreds of African refugees from different nationalities from Ethiopia, Somalia and other African countries were seen crossing sub-roads in the Mansoura district after they managed to flee their place of detention at the Martyr Hamid Stadium in Mansoura.

Last week, IOM began deporting a first batch of about 115 migrants, including women and children, but the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said in a statement that many Afro-migrants were still being held in the southern city of Aden.
