Socotra is a small archipelago of four islands and islets in the Indian Ocean off the coast of the Horn of Africa. It is so isolated that a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet. It has been described as *the most alien-looking place on Earth*.

The inhabitants are of Arab, Somali & South Asian origins. They follow the Islamic faith, and speak Soqotri, a Semitic language. Their primary occupation has been fishing, livestock rearing and date cultivation. Recently tourism has also become a means of livelihood

Now, exactly why does this place belong to Yemen?

- What a TRAGEDY!
