420 Ethiopian Refugees Riot at Yemen Refugee Camp

The Yemeni authorities controlled on Monday a riot by African refugees who protested their bad conditions in the Kharaz refugee camp in Lahj province, the September 26 website reported.
About 420 Ethiopian refugees, who were earlier transferred from Dhamar province, closed all roads to the refugee camp and its gate preventing the UN staff and staffs of other agencies from leaving and entering it, the website said.
The Ethiopians were demanding to improve their conditions, and the authorities controlled the situation, the website quoted a source at the camp as saying.
It is the second time the Ethiopian refugees were rioting, the source continued, urging to take action to prevent any outlawed acts in the camp, according to the website.
