Those who survive face uncertain futures, discrimination and prison. Many of these refugees come from Eritrea, a country where freedom and opportunity are severely restricted.
Eritrea and Ethiopia fought a border war from 1998 to 2000. Thousands died, and animosities persist to this day. When the war ended, the international community formed a boundary commission to delimit and demarcate the countries’ shared border. The commission was responsible for reconciling each side’s border claims.
In April 2014, nine Ethiopian journalists were arrested and jailed under the broad interpretation of anti-terrorism laws. They were accused of working with opposition groups to overthrow the government. Yet no evidence of any wrongdoing has been produced.
