More than 80 people are feared drowned after two boats capsized off the coast of Yemen, the coast guard in Aden said Monday.

Yemen's Interior Ministry confirmed the incident on their state-run news site, adding that the two boats capsized in two different accidents and at two different sites.

According to a report on the official website of Yemen’s ruling party, three survivors have been recovered, all Somalis, from a boat that carried 46 people. The second boat was believed to have 35 to 40 people aboard. Most of those missing are thought to be from Ethiopia.

Uh oh. Hopefully it's not the alledged stargate at work. Maybe this area is turning into the new Bermuda triangle. I still haven't made up my mind one way or the other about the goings on off the Gulf of Aden. I mean, I'm sure there are magnetic anomolies all over the planet...maybe this area is just another one.

I realize that many of these boats are overcrowded with fleeing refuges, BUT 2 boats "capsize" at the same time?? I checked the weather there and I can't seem to find where the weather had anything to do with it. All seems calm, fair with winds about 14-15 knots...no gusts. So WHY did both of them capsize?? Or were they purposely sunk? Just asking.
