Eritrea 'haemorrhaging' youth fleeing atrocities: Amnesty

An Eritrean refugee rides a cart at a temporary camp in Kassala, in eastern Sudan, on October 22, 2015Eritrea’s claims it has ended indefinite national service are untrue and refugees arriving in Europe should not be deemed economic migrants, Amnesty International said Tuesday, warning of “persistent atrocities”. Refugees from the repressive Red Sea state make up the third-largest number of people risking the dangerous journey to Europe after Syrians and Afghans, running the gauntlet of ruthless people smugglers and treacherous waters. There was no immediate response from Asmara, but Eritrea has defended its policy of decades-long national service from which some 5,000 people flee each month, saying it has “no other choice” due to threats from long-standing enemy Ethiopia.
