A group of four Rashaida attackers kidnapped 14 Eritrean refugees, including 8 women in Eastern Sudan, just 1 Km from Shegerab Refugee Camp, according to Eritrean refugees in the refugee Camp.

The victims were among 70 Eritrean refugees who were being transported from Wedi Sherifey to Shegerab Refugee camp on a lorry hired by the refugee agency, UNHCR.

Two Eritrean refugees injured while trying to flee the incident are receiving treatment in Hospital.

It is a well-known fact that thousands of Eritrean refugees in Eastern Sudan, Shegerab Refugee Camp in particular have been vulnerable for the continuous Rashaida raids and kidnappings in the past. Shegrab was one of the main sources of refugee supply for the Rashaida Human Traffickers who had been engaged in the illegal human trade in conjunction with the Sinai Bedouins.

In light of this fact, the UNHCR should be investigated whether it is responsible for negligence and putting the lives of 14 poor refuges at risk.

    Eritreans, how long are you going to cry? You are tired of crying every week or month, you have no tears left now, but to try the one and only one means to stop from crying, that is to fight back where ever you are. Fight to the very enemy who made you cry every day. Crying doesn’t even make you feel flattered given your age and fitness. It is just disgraceful to see young energetic citizen crying instead of fighting to the death. Coming to the West does not mean you have solved your problem unless the reason behind your migration is bread as opposed to better opportunity to organize yourself to fight back the enemy.
