Explanation

There are rumors of Oil in the Red Sea. Yemen has some islands on the Eritrean side of the channel, near the Bab el Mandab (Mouth of the Red Sea). In December 1995 there was some fighting over these. Eritrean troops tried to occupy some of the islands near its own coast. The best solution would surely be arbitration by the International Court.

All the frontiers were fixed in colonial times and perhaps ought to be renegotiated, especially after Eritrean independence.
