Watch Eritrean prisoners Confessions from the Somalia war Part one, Part two, Part three you must see this!!!
On May 22, 2006 Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (AFD) was formed which CUD was one of the key players.  "Rebel gunmen have killed at least 74 people in an attack on an oil field in Ethiopia's remote Somali region, the Ethiopian government says. Sixty-five Ethiopians and nine Chinese oil workers were killed, while seven Chinese were also taken captive in the incident, an official said." (BBC) This is what (ONLF/AFD/CUD) did two months ago. In the May elections at least 193 civilians and 7 police officers lost their lives and business worth millions are destroyed. All this just because CUD wants power by any means necessary. The unity of the Ethiopian people is at its lowest after the failed attempt to over throw the EPRDF government by CUD leaders. CUD declared war on Tigraians using the slogan "Tigrie wede Mekelie nibret wede kebelie".

Had CUD/AFD succeeded on their mission the fate of Tigraians in Addis Abeba and other parts of Ethiopia would have been worst than the fate of Tutsis in Rwanda. I would not be able to list the crimes of CUD/AFD against the Ethiopian people on this article, but the point is why on earth are they being released with out paying for their crimes? Mean while Siye and other Ethiopians are languishing in prison for years with out any justice. Is Siye worst than the Dergi riffraff like Hailu Shawel? Or Siye does not have people on higher places? Are they being released because they didn't commit any crime or they are reformed enough and they will never try again? I am afraid we will hear from them as soon as they step out of the gates of the jail house and it is not going to be their love for peace. Here is how Ethiomedia puts it explaining why they are realeased
"Here is the accurate information. The Meles regime is feeling the pressure from the international community, particularly soon after the guilty verdict went public. In fact, the guilty verdict, which was written in the palace by Meles, was meant to subject the prisoners to Meles Zenawi's demand that they exonerate him of the crimes he committed. He is badly in need of face saving." (Ethiomedia.com)

"Negotiations on the prisoners' release have proceeded despite their conviction last week on charges including "outrage against the constitution" and aggravated high treason" (Washington Post) excuse me for a living, what negotiations are we talking about. If the Ethiopian government is serious about justice those rotten Hate mongers should serve their time in jail. The plane field of justice should be level for every one. If not, it is a game.

Small turtles may carry salmonella: CDC

In a report released Thursday, investigators from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and elsewhere describe several cases of salmonella infection, including one fatality, linked to exposure to small turtles.

Turtles and other reptiles are well-known reservoirs for Salmonella. Small turtles are particularly risky because they are often given to children as pets and handled like toys. Although the sale or distribution of small turtles measuring less than 4 inches was officially outlawed in the US in 1975, cases of turtle-associated salmonella infection continue to occur.

In the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report for July 6, twenty-two cases of turtle-associated infection with Salmonella in young children are described. The cases occurred in 2006 and 2007.

The fatal case involved a 3-week-old infant and testing confirmed that the type of salmonella present was indistinguishable from the one found on the family's small pet turtle.

Hand washing with soap and water after touching reptiles or their cages and keeping them out of food-preparation areas is critical in preventing Salmonella infection, the researchers emphasize.

Still, "prohibiting the sale of small turtles likely remains the most effective public health action to prevent turtle-associated salmonellosis."

Seeye Abraha Out from Jail
Seeye Abraha, former strongman of the TPLF, made his way out of jail on Wednesday, June 11, after spending six years there, accused of involvement in grand corruption. He was released a day after the Federal Supreme Court sentenced him for five years imprisonment and 500 Br fine. "I am pleased to join my family and see them happy," Seeye told Fortune on Wednesday late afternoon, in a telephone interview he gave from his home. "I've seen and learn a lot about the supremacy of the law and judicial independence in this country," Seeye told Fortune. "Better than any time before, I've come to learn that these are important milestones for a country whether you are in business or politics."

'Lucy's' Houston visit turns political
Don't count on too many local Ethiopians getting in line to see Lucy, the superstar fossil from Ethiopia, when she makes her international public debut in Houston in late August. "The sad commentary is a museum of this significance does not have a bit of the wherewithal to learn about this regime and to do business with it,"said Moges Meshesha, 46, a member of the group who came to the U.S. more than two decades ago under political asylum from Ethiopia.

Ethiopia yields ancestral fossils
Researchers have found fossil remains of early human ancestors in Ethiopia that date to a little known period in human evolution. Dr Yohannes Haile-Selassie, one of the team's leaders, told the BBC: "One of the reasons why this discovery is really important is because it serves as a time frame that we know nothing about in the past and that's what makes it really significant."

Siye Abraha, Tigrai HeroNews coming from Ethiopia indicates that Ayte Siye Abraha is out of jail freed by the courts at last. Congratulations to every one who stood for justice!

Mr. Siye Abraha who served in different levels of the EPRDF government including a Defense minister is veteran TPLF (Tigrai Peoples Libration Front) fighter. After the split of The TPLF about nine years ago because of the Eritrean war, the looser group of the TPLF which included Siye Abraha was removed from the government. After a few months Siye Abraha and his brothers and sister, Betewling Belai (another veteran TPLF fighter and a senior EPRDF member) were thrown to jail. They were charged with corruption.

The case of Siye Abraha was adjourned over 23 times because the judges did not show up. Most people including my self believe the corruption case against Siye was very week if not made up. Many of us believe it was a power struggle gone wrong and got out of hand. The corruption charges were a cover up to lock up Siye in fear that he might stir trouble against the Algiers agreement with Eritrea. Finally after so many years in prison, it seems like the hero of the armed struggle Siye Abraha might be free.
As soon as more detail is available we will keep you informed.
