Eritrean migrants rally in support of compatriots

February 1, 2013 16:51

Around 150 Eritrean asylum seekers protested outside the Eritrean embassy in Ramat Gan on Friday morning, in a show of solidarity with Eritrean political prisoners and a group of army officers who staged a failed coup in Asmara last month.

The protesters called for the release of political prisoners and shouted for the implementation of the 1997 constitution, the same demands made by a group of Army officers who stormed the state television headquarters at the Ministry of Information in Asmara on January 21st and forced the station off the air, before government forces managed to retake the offices later in the day.
