Britons held in Eritrea have been released

Four Britons held in Eritrea on spying and terrorism charges since December have been released, the Foreign Office (FCO) has said. The four men - who all worked for the same security firm - are believed to be on their way back to the UK.
The Predictable Isaias Afeworki regime has done it again! A little over ten years ago, at the 11th hour and on the verge of being dislodged from Eritrea by Ethiopian forces, it signed on the dotted line to abide by all the demands Ethiopia brought to the table. Today at the 11th hour before Britain impose a sanction on it and its ability to collect 2% tax from its subjects in Britain, it released the four British men whom it has been telling the world were assassins!!. Predictable indeed!
