ADEN, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Sixty-five people including three children drowned in the Gulf of Aden while trying to cross from Somalia to Yemen, official Yemeni media said on Thursday.
About 15 others swam to safety after a vessel carrying the migrants sank close to the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula country, said the Saba news agency, adding that the survivors were Somali nationals.

The Yemeni navy and fishermen pulled 50 bodies from the sea while 15 bodies were found on the beach.
