Spike in the number of Eritrean refugee arrivals

Northern Ethiopia continues to receive large numbers of Eritrean refugees, including unaccompanied minors. The number of daily refugee arrivals spiked since the first week of September. At present, more than 200 Eritreans cross the Ethiopian border each day.

The sudden spike in arrivals cause congestion at the reception centre. Unaccompanied minors and separated children are spending more than one week at the centre, adding to protection concerns. UNHCR and the Government refugee agency, ARRA, are trying to address this gap. Some 19,000 refugees were registered in 2014, including 1,836 in September and 1,700 in October. As of 16 October, Ethiopia hosted 104,343 Eritrean refugees.

By TesfaNews,

ERITREA’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations, H.E. Ambassador Girma Asmerom, addressed the UN Sanctions Committee on October 10th following the release of the 2014 Somalia Eritrea Monitoring Group (SEMG) Report.

After thanking the UN Secretariat and the Chairperson of the Committee for providing the opportunity, Ambassador Girma went on to explain the numerous irregularities and groundless allegations that are allowed to be incorporated within the report. Read More

Running battles between African mobs, riot police with tear gas, a teenage girl killed chasing a truck to get to Britain... Just another day on the Calais front line | 
Their faces covered, a gang of Ethiopian youths marches towards a rival camp in Calais brandishing sticks and rocks.

As they come into sight, a group of Eritreans arm themselves and rush out to defend their territory.

But French riot police are on the scene within minutes. After firing tear gas from behind their shields they manage to drive the groups apart.

Yesterday’s clash was over almost as soon as it started – but it will happen again today. And tomorrow.

Eritreans and Ethiopians fighting over various routes into the ferry port appeared to be the principal reason for the fights, a police spokesman said.

It is thought that rows with people-smugglers who charge up to £1,000 cash for passage to Britain have also contributed to the trouble.

Yesterday, one Ethiopian man, who asked not to be named, said that Eritrean people smugglers were charging money for access to coveted areas for sneaking aboard lorries.

‘They are trying to charge us 500 euro (£395) to get on a lorry and they will not let us wait in the good areas where the lorries are parked,’ he said. ‘It is not fair that one group of people get access and another don’t. They cannot keep it to themselves.’

The AfDB Board also approved the Interim Country Strategy Paper (I-CSP)for Eritrea. The I-CSP covers the period 2014-2016 and aims to assist the Government of Eritrea in addressing its binding development challenges in a coordinated and consultative manner.

The strategy focuses on enhancing skills development and technology, in support of inclusiveness and transition to green growth. In addition, the Bank will support the government to build resilience and capacity to deal with, and adapt to a challenging environment to promote inclusive growth and poverty reduction.

It will also scale up advisory services through economic and sector work as well as assist in creating capacity and conditions necessary for the finalisation and implementation of the National Development Plan (NDP) as well as preparation of a full-fledged Country Strategy Paper.
