Ethiopia attacks Eritrea over hostage saga

Ethiopia attacks Eritrea over hostage saga

ADDIS ABABA, April 21 (Reuters)
- Ethiopia pledged on Saturday not to forget eight nationals kidnapped since early March in a case it blames on Horn of Africa neighbour Eritrea.

"The Ethiopian government will not stop its efforts until its abducted citizens are released," Foreign Minister Seyoum Mesfin said in a statement.

Addis Ababa has accused foreign media of ignoring the case of the eight, who were with five Europeans seized at gunpoint in the remote Afar region of north Ethiopia at the start of March.

The Europeans were freed in Eritrea after 12 days, but nothing has been heard of their Ethiopian guides.

Addis Ababa says Asmara is behind the continued abduction of the eight, but Eritrea denies that as malicious propaganda. Analysts believe a rebel group from the Afar region, which straddles both countries, is holding them.

"The terrorist acts being perpetrated by the Eritrean government are similar to those being carried out by outlaws," Seyoum added, in a diatribe against Asmara.

Ethiopia and Eritrea went to war in 1998-2000 over their disputed border and remain bitter foes.

The kidnapping has exacerbated tensions.

Ethiopia : London Marathon 2007 Haile Gebrselassie drops out of marathon

Haile Gebrselassie drops out of London Marathon Kenya's Martin Lel is the winner

LONDON (Reuters) - Ethiopia's pre-race favourite Haile Gebrselassie dropped out of the London Marathon shortly after the 30-km mark on Sunday.

Television pictures showed Berlin marathon champion Gebrselassie, who has never won in London, holding his stomach as he stood by the side of the road.

The 34-year-old former world and Olympic 10,000 metres champion had been up with the lead group before stepping off the road.

Asked what he thought had caused him to pull up, he told BBC television:

"I don't know ... maybe it was something I drank."

It was his third attempt at the London race. Gebrselassie was third on his debut in 2002 and ninth last year.

Gebrselassie 'is vulnerable'

Haile Gebrselassie can prove his true credentials at the third attempt when chasing victory in today's Flora London Marathon.

Pre-race favourite Gebrselassie tackles the best men's field ever assembled for any meeting, and the list of superstars includes his former track rival and reigning world marathon record-holder Paul Tergat.

The presence of Olympic and world champions Stefano Baldini and Jaouad Gharib and Khalid Khannouchi - who preceded Tergat as the world's fastest man - plus many other potential winners emphasises the race's strength in depth.

Gebrselassie, third on his marathon debut in London five years ago but ninth last year, is strongly tipped to finally clinch the title.

With three victories under his belt and after topping the 2006 world rankings following his victory in Berlin last September, he insisted: "I suppose I'm a real marathon runner now."

Ethiopia: Tiny community maintains strong ties
Because the population is small, immigrants feel greater need to seek each other to give, receive support
By LULADEY B. TADESSE, The News Journal

Abderhman Temam knew no one in Delaware when he arrived from Ethiopia three months ago.

The 24-year-old former café manager came to America after winning a Diversity Visa Lottery, a U.S. government program that allows citizens from different countries a chance to legally immigrate to the United States.

Adjusting to America hasn't been easy for Abderhman. His English skills aren't great, and finding a job without work experience hasn't been easy.

Fleeing repressive Ethiopian regime for the U.S., freedom and a good education

By LULADEY B. TADESSE, The News Journal

I was born at a time in Ethiopia when it was common for parents to tell their children to shut their eyes as they were walking down the streets -- so they didn't see the dead bodies of those who allegedly colluded against the Marxist regime.

My parents avoided talking about politics in front of me.
