SANAA - Yemen expelled a New Zealand journalist who entered the country clandestinely on a ship carrying Somali refugees, security sources said on Wednesday.

The journalist, identified as Glen Johnson, was sent late on Tuesday back to Djibouti, where he had begun a journey with refugees in what New Zealand media said was to be a report on child trafficking in the Arabian Peninsula state.

UN officials and experts say child trafficking and illegal migration, mainly from Horn of Africa countries, are among the myriad problems afflicting Yemen, just across Gulf of Aden. The impoverished Arab country is also in the midst of political turmoil that many worry could plunge it into civil war.
