Yemen detains Ethiopian opposition leader

World Bulletin / News Desk

Yemeni security forces have detained an Ethiopian opposition leader at Sanaa international airport.

Andargachew Tsegie, second-in-command of Ginbot 7 opposition movement, was arrested late Monday while on his way to Eritrea, the movement said on its official website, according to the Ethiopian Walta information center.

The opposition movement said that efforts with Yemeni authorities to get Andargachew released were fruitless.

It remains unclear why the Ethiopian opposition leader was arrested by Yemeni authorities.

There was no comment from Yemeni or Ethiopian authorities on Andargachew's detention.

Andargachew has been serving as the Secretary General of the organization since it was founded in 2008.

Yemeni officials are making a mistake. This man is a freedom fighter trying to free his country from a brutal murderous dictatorship. Why Yemen wanted to dip its nose in this is bewildering. Release him ASAP. Ethiopian dictators are ruthless killers. Yemen will have blood on its hands if it extradited this man to Ethiopia.

The man holds UK citizenship; why send him to Ethiopian dictatorial regime?The Yemen government is trying to help the Ethiopian genocidal dictatorial group, who are on power through gun not by democracy means.
