A boat carrying African migrants has sunk off near Yemen's western coast, killing 70 people.

The boat, carrying mostly Ethiopian migrants, sank off near Yemen's al-Makha port due to strong winds and rough waves.

Tens of thousands attempt to cross the Red Sea into Yemen every year, often in rickety, overcrowded vessels. Hundreds have died making the journey.

Yemen is viewed by many migrants as a gateway to the Middle East or Europe.
