Yemen, 2010: An 8-year-old Nigerian boy stands with other prisoners, in the port city of Hodeidah. He was arrested for illegal entry into Yemen. After three months, UNICEF and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees advocated his release, and he has since returned to Nigeria. On 10 December, Human Rights Day commemorated the sixty-third anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which includes “the right to life, liberty and security of person.”
