  1. soundbite (English)
    Boat Passenger #1: There are a lot of dangers there. A lot of bombs, a lot of snipers. We can't help the people there because of bombs. I don't have any information about my family here, because I can't contact them. So I ask God to help them, God willing. Some families have been waiting since yesterday, so I think they have very little food that would only last them for one day. They don't have a lot of food there. They don't have any houses left. Their houses were destroyed. Destroyed.
  2. soundbite (French)
    Boat Passenger #2: People have left. All of them. There is nobody there. It's over. Because of the war. The Houthis have entered. Electricity is shut down. Food... there is no food. And water... there is no water. Everybody has left to al-Bureykha.
