The War From War

Apparently Somali refugees who fled to Yemen from the fighting in Somalia are being forced to fight in Yemen’s own intensifying civil war by the rebel separtist in the north of the country. So far 16 refugees have been killed for refusing to take arms on behalf of the rebels. Others joined the rebels. Obviosly this is illegal under international law.

A while back it was the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia recruiting soldiers from refugee camps in Kenya with the help of the Kenyan governtment. Although this was not a forced recruitment, the morality of it is highly questionable to say the least.
