MANY foreigners are fleeing Yemen by sea to Djibouti because of the continued and discriminate Saudi airstrikes. I wonder why Ethiopians are not going to Assab which is very close from the Aden port to save their lives.

Unfortunately, the United States, despite being the chief negotiator and guarantor of the Algiers Agreement, has abdicated its responsibility as a “guarantor” in making sure the border commission’s verdict is translated on the ground in its entirety with demarcation being the final phase to conclude the boundary commission’s work.

Ethiopian Foreign Minister, Tedros Adhanom’s 30 meters sprint to a waiting car after being separated from his body guards during scuffle with refugees must have been the most embarrassing moment of his life.
He lost his wallet, a note book and his glasses while sprinting like a cheetah.
Starting fromMarch 15, the Norwegian government is set to deport over 400 Ethiopian refugees living in the country without legal documents or resident permit back to Ethiopia.
