NAIROBI, Kenya – A new report says the international community must engage more with the authoritarian leadership of Eritrea to prevent the tiny Red Sea nation from becoming another failed state in the Horn of Africa.

The International Crisis Group says the effects of Eritrea's 1998-2000 war with Ethiopia, an economy in freefall and rising poverty are hemorrhaging the legitimacy of the authoritarian political system in the country. The report — "Eritrea: The Siege State" — was released late Tuesday.

In late 2009, the UN Security Council imposed an arms embargo and other sanctions against Eritrea for supplying weapons to insurgents opposed to the Somali government and refusing to resolve a border dispute with neighboring Djibouti, a key US ally.
