Ethiopia PM accuses Eritrea of kidnappings
ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi accused Eritrea on Tuesday of abducting dozens of Ethiopian miners from the country's northwest, in a potential escalation of tension between the arch-enemies."They (Eritrean government) recently kidnapped more than 100 young miners who were mining gold in our country's northwest. And in the northeast, they killed some tourists and kidnapped others," Meles said, the latter referring to the January raid.
PM Meles govt ought to explain to the country and the people living on the border area why the current status quo is what they have to live with given the alternative. The govt needs to talk to the people! the premier needs one more tour to meet the people and hear their anguish! If people can not dig the dirt and plow the field in peace, we are not sure if the current status quo is any good!. May be we need to reestablish the 25KM no man zone! That will be "temtatagn!". This abduction apparently happened a while back and last month incursion in to western Eritrea by the EDF was in response to this.  |  BreakNews|   MFA|   Capital|   Fortune|   BBC|   Walta|   ENA|   Reporter|   Tigraionline Awefeki |   VOA Fana  |    Dwoyane | AigaBlog  |   Shashublog
