Ethiopia reports influx of Eritrean refugees fleeing oppression
ADDIS ABABA (AFP) — Ethiopia claimed on Saturday it was receiving an influx of around 600 Eritreans fleeing political oppression in their country every month.
"The ministry said many are fleeing their country and each month more than 600 Eritreans are crossing the border into Ethiopia to seek refuge. The figure is increasing alarmingly," Ethiopia's information ministry said in a statement.
"The Eritrean people cannot bear the burden of the dictatorial regime any more because it has allied itself with terrorists and has driven them to great poverty and endless suffering."
