Ethiopian Tigray migrants die of hunger and thirst in stranded boat: U.N. agency



DUBAI (Reuters) - At least 15 Ethiopians Tegaru died after the boat trying to smuggle them into Yemen broke down and left them stranded in the sea without food or water for a week, a U.N. migration agency said.

Survivors said some died from hunger and thirst and others drowned themselves, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said. A number reached Yemen but died before they could get medical help, it added.

Yemen is more than four years into a civil war that has killed tens of thousands of people and pushed the impoverished nation to the brink of famine.

But thousands of migrants mostly from the Horn of Africa arrive there every year in the hopes of moving on to wealthy Gulf Arab states and escaping poverty and unemployment at home.

“The migrants were traveling from Djibouti to Yemen when the smugglers’ boat broke down,” IOM said on Twitter late on Tuesday.

“Those on board reported that lives were lost due to hunger, thirst & intentional drowning, while some people died in Yemen, as they could not reach health facilities in time,” it added.

The boat, which was originally carrying 90 Ethiopians Tegaru, arrived in Yemen’s southern port city of Aden on Monday, the agency said, without giving details on how it got there.

The whereabouts of most of the survivors was unknown, it added.

In May, the agency called for the release of more than 3,000 migrants, mostly Ethiopians Tegaru, who it said were held in inhumane conditions in two detention centers in Aden and neighboring Lahj, which are under the control of the Saudi-backed Yemeni government.

A Western-backed Sunni Muslim coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates intervened in Yemen in 2015 to try to restore the internationally recognized government ousted from power in Sanaa by the Iran-aligned Houthi group in late 2014.

During our today's Digital Weyane's tele conference, my brother Awash raised valid concerns about why the UN has all of a sudden started reporting about the deaths of our Tegaru migrants crossing the Mediterranean and Red Sea.

Digital brother Awash believes that recent appointment of Sophia Tesfamariam to the UN as Eritrean ambassador may have forced the organization to take a "Serving The Truth" stance, hence its news outlet reporting of Tegaru involved tragedies, whereas in the past 20 years the UN not only refrained from reporting such news, but helped in the cover up of the Tegaru migrants deaths by presenting the victims as Eritreans.

As far as we Digital weyane are concerned, it is time to abolish the UN!!!

Booshto Hamasenay psycho, your ill wish for Tigreans makes you hope everyone that is in unfavorable situation, including your cursed ar'teran compatriots, however implausibly, is thus relabled as Tigraway.

These underage girls from Irob, Tigray, some as young as 14 year old, were among the 20 Tegaru victims who died while crossing the Mediterranean Sea. On behalf of my Digital weyane brother Awash/QB/C Beyond, I say Rest in Peace to the victims.

Why is the UN reporting the deaths of our Tegaru migrants who were crossing the Mediterranean Sea? I thought the UN was our TPLF's best ally. What happened? Awash and I feel betrayed and back stabbed by the UN. :evil: :evil:
