ADDIS ABABA (HAN) June 14.2016. Public Diplomacy & Regional Security News. Ethiopian and Eritrean troops clashed at several border locations on Sunday, local website Horn Affairs said, citing sources it didn’t identify. Ethiopia’s government said it had no reports of incidents.

Fighting involving heavy artillery began around 5 a.m. and continued until at least early afternoon, the Addis Ababa-based website said.

The incident could be an effort by the Eritrean government to distract attention from a June 8 United Nations report that said its leaders committed crimes against humanity, Getachew Reda, Ethiopia’s communications minister, said by phone from Frankfurt.

Eritrea’s Information Minister Yemane Gebremeskel didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment made on Twitter Inc.

Eritrea, a former province of its neighbor, fought a two-year war with Ethiopia that formally ended in 2000, although its government has maintained war-time controls such as requiring national service and suspended enactment of a constitution.

  1. Now is the time for Ethiopia with the help of US , and other peace loving countries to get capture and turn Afewerki to international criminal court . This killer must be stopped before he kills more people .

  2. “A STATE OF WAR ONLY SERVES AS AN EXCUSE FOR DOMESTIC TYRANNY”
    – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    It is amazing the COIE(commission of Inquiry Of Eritrea) came with the decision to refer the cold blooded murderer ISAYAS AFEWORKI and his criminal mercenaries and thieves like YEMANE GEBREAB to the INTERNATIONAL CRIMNAL COURT (ICC) for the ruthless atrocity they committed against our people and of course as expected for diversion purpose they instigated and started war, to wash our people in a blood bath.

    Orwell knew what Vladimir Putin is doing: all dictators need an enemy
    By David Blair World Last updated: April 3rd, 2014

    In the nightmare world of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, three vast totalitarian states were permanently at war. Big Brother needed outside enemies to rally the masses behind his rule. As ever, real life suggests that Orwell was on to something: authoritarian states do seem more likely to go to war; democracies, by contrast, very rarely fight one another.
    The country which might have modelled itself on Orwell’s vision, North Korea, duly tells its people that they are permanently on the brink of war. Whenever the tension with South Korea eases, North Korea always turns the temperature back up again. Only last week, Kim Jong-un’s regime was test-firing ballistic missiles; on Monday the army bombarded South Korean territorial waters with hundreds of artillery shells.
    Eritrea, a country that serves as Africa’s version of North Korea, lives in perpetual confrontation with its larger neighbour, Ethiopia. This allows Eritrea’s dictator, Isaias Afewerki, to maintain a huge standing army and keep his population permanently mobilised and quiescent. Both Kim and Isaias know that banging the war drum and talking endlessly of plots and enemies is a tried and tested way of staying in power. There is nothing an authoritarian leader needs more desperately than an external enemy.
    Sadly, Vladimir Putin’s behaviour over Ukraine suggests that he may have reached this stage. In a powerful piece in The New York Times, Michael McFaul, a former US ambassador to Moscow, writes that “Putin needed an enemy — the United States — to strengthen his legitimacy. His propagandists rolled out clips on American imperialism, immoral practices and alleged plans to overthrow the Putin government.”
    As we ponder why Putin has upended the post-Cold War order by grabbing a chunk of another European country, we might be wrong to think solely of issues like Nato enlargement and Ukraine’s ambition to join the European Union.
    Just as important might be the internal politics of Russia. Back at home, Putin’s seizure of Crimea has been hugely popular: his approval ratings have jumped to around 70 per cent. Meanwhile, I understand that Russian television is pumping out a daily diet of reports about fiendish Western plots to subvert and encircle Mother Russia. If Orwell was alive today, he would point out how all this serves to reinforce Putin’s grip on power. Like Big Brother in Oceania, Putin knows that conjuring up outside enemies is the most reliable way of rallying his people behind him. The Western powers think this crisis is all about them. I wonder whether, in reality, the imperatives of Russian domestic politics are just as important?
