Security forces arrest 98 Eritrean sponsored anti-peace elements

Addis Ababa, April 21, 2017 (FBC) – Security forces arrested 98 Eritrean sponsored anti-peace elements during the past two months alone.

They were arrested trying to cross into Ethiopia via west Tigray zone after receiving a terror mission from Eritrean-based two terrorist organizations, Ginbot 7 and Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), said the zonal administration.

Tekiyu Metko, deputy administrator and security sector head of the zone, told FBC that they were arrested owing to the joint efforts of members of the defense force and the local residents.

According to him, 15 of them were arrested this week while attempting to enter into the central part of the country to attack socio-economic institutions.
