Ethiopia releases 68 Eritrean prisoners of war after it was holding them for over six months. The Eritrean prisoners of war are from the May 2012 fighting in the Badme border area. God knows how many of their comrades perished in the battle.

Ethiopia said on Monday it had released 68 Eritrean prisoners of War (PoW), but seven of them have sought asylum in the country that once held them prisoners.

The Eritreans were caught during a March raid on Eritrean military bases, which Ethiopia claims were used for "hit-and-run" attacks by subversive groups operating in the remote region.
