Description : Tens of thousands of civilians are caught in the crossfire of a battle between Yemeni government forces and a group of armed militants from Al Qaeda in Abyan province in southern Yemen. Many have fled the fighting, most of who have sought refuge in public school buildings in cities like Aden and Lahj where they languish for months without a clear sign of when they can return home.
